The best cut out cookies dough hand down!

This cut out cookies dough is easy to make. These cookies are absolutely my favorite! I usually don't even get a chance to frost them before my family has all of them eatten. This is also the cookies dough I used for my

Dino-Mite cookies bouquet I use this recipe to make my holiday cut out cookies and for my Build a Snowman cookies The taste of the cookies is a combination of a butter cookie, a sugar cookie and a short bread cookie. It's just so YUMMY!

Cut out cookie dough recipe:Ingredients:

1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese (softened)

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened

1 egg yolk

1 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

2 1/4 cups plain flour, sifted

1/2 tsp. baking soda

Directions: Preheat oven to 350. beat cream cheese, butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until creamy. Add flour, and baking soda; mix well.

Roll dough to 1/8 in thickness on lightly floured ( I use powdered sugar instead of flour) surface. Cut with cookie cutters. Place on parchment lined or floured cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 min or until edges begin to brown. Ice with your favorite icing. I use royal icing because it dries hard, but is easy to use and tastes great!

Here's my Build a Snowman Cookies tutorial. I love these. They turn out so cute and I get so many compliments on such a unique winter gift. Sometimes I will put the cookies in a clear glass jar and put a ribbon around the top with a note that says," Now go build a snowman"
