Long story short I had to remake cookie dough last minute tonight-I had made some days ago and it was just not right. The shower that was suppose to be Sunday was moved up to today because of the storm coming in--so my plans of spending all Saturday baking, and decorating went kaput!
Soooooo, I had a roll of Walmarts sugar cookie dough. I let it thaw out in a bowl. Then I floured my surface with a ton of flour...rolled it out flat. I then spread 1/3 of an 8oz pack of softened cream cheese on it and 1 tbs soft butter. I then sprinkled 1/3 cup of sugar and then put 1/2 cup of flour on top.. I rolled it up and with ample flour started kneading it all together, adding flour until I got my consistency right. After it was kneaded in -maybe one min of kneading I rolled in ball and let cool a bit in fridge. 5 mins later I split in half rolled out and cut cookies--cooled them on trays for 10 mins in fridge and baked. No spreading. Taste better than any sugar cookie, I've made! I know it's sorta cheating--but I didn't feel like pulling out the mixer, etc. If you're ever in a pinch give it a shot! We'll call it K's Cookie cheat recipe!:p


P.S. This is seriously a life saver for when you are short on time, don't wanna haul out the mixer, eggs, yada, yada and tasted great! No spreading!

That does sound yummy! Karen's cream cheese cookies are very good. I've been in the cream cheese mode, too. This week I tried a new recipe for cupcakes for my step-daughter's 25 b-day next weekend. (Yes, I'm making cookies, too!) But, since I'm too chicken to make a cake, I thought, "Ah-ha, cupcakes!". So I found a delicious butter cupcake recipe (since that is her favorite) and made a cream cheese with mascarpone cheese butter cream frosting. I thought I had died and gone to Heaven. I'll tint the frosting purple since that is her favorite color and bring her cookies. I think that'll do her up just fine.

Sounds good, but messy. I would knead my KA for this.

Nope --just wiped up the flour on the counter when I was done. It kneaded in super easy-not sticky because of the flour. Rolled out great.
