Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles

Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles

Everyone in our family has been a little under the weather to say the least with crazy-bad head colds and one nasty case of laryngitis.  I feel like it is from the extreme changes in the weather because over the last few weeks we have seen temperatures of up to 60 degrees and as low as 15 below zero, good gravy I am ready for spring.  I decided a good batch of snickerdoodles were bound to make us all feel better.  The warm smell of cinnamon coming out of the oven was good for the senses and the cookies were mighty good with that thirty-third cup of coffee.  Okay may thirty-third is a slight exaggeration, but not by much.  After a few sleepless nights with sick kids I end up drinking LOTS of coffee.  I think these snickerdoodles are a great way to brighten some-one’s day.

Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles

4 oz cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 tablespoons sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a mixer bowl, add cream cheese and butter and beat with an electric mixer until well combined.  Beat in sugar, eggs and vanilla .  Add flour and baking soda mixing until all combined.  Scoop into 1 1/2  inch balls and roll in sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Place 2 inches apart on a greased or line baking sheet and press gently with tines of a fork in a crisscross pattern.   Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

Snickerdoodles used to be my favorite treat to make when I was in Home Ec. Clearly it’s time to revisit these classics. I hope you and the fam feel better!

I feel your pain with the sickness…my family has been recovering influenza for the past month! Boy it was a nasty bug! I hope you are all feeling better soon…

I love snickerdoodles, and I have never seen them made with cream cheese before. I am definately intrigued! I bet the cream cheese makes them nice and soft!

I’ve never made snickerdoodles with cream cheese before. I am going to give them a try!

If snickerdoodles can’t bring a “change in the weather”. Nothing can. I hope you feel better. I sure do, so snickerdoodles must work. GREG

Awesome cookies….just made these this morning :)

We’ve had that here too–only our temps aren’t swinging THAT low. I had to click and remind myself of where you lived–and then I said oh yeah that would explain it. :) But our higher lows haven’t kept any of us healthy I am sad to say. And if winter comes back and we have to do it all over again there will be mayhem. :) Love the addition of cream cheese to these snickerdoodles.
