I dress these cookies with green sugar sprinkles and strawberry jam to look like Christmas. The jam can be varied for different tastes and occasions.—Jennifer Eits, Omaha, Nebraska

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter, softened

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
