Philadelphia Sugar Cookies
8 ounces cream cheese, softened (I often use neufchatel)
1 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
colored sugar or frosting to decorate
Beat cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add flour; mix well. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness on lightly floured surface. Cut into shapes; sprinkle with colored sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350ºF for 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
