egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp baking powder
1¾ cups GF all-purpose flour

Utensils

  • Ice-cream/cookie scoop
  • Step 1/11

    • baking sheet
    • parchment paper

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Step 2/11

    • 1 stick butter (softened)
    • 4 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
    • Whisk/electric mixer
    • Bowl

    Cream together butter and cream cheese with a whisk or an electric mixer.

  • Step 3/11

    • 1 cup granulated white sugar

    Add sugar and beat for 1 minute.

  • Step 4/11

    • egg

    Add egg and beat to combine.

  • Step 5/11

    • 1 tsp vanilla extract

    Add vanilla extracts and beat the dough until combined.

  • Step 6/11

    • ½ tsp baking powder
    • 1¾ cups GF all-purpose flour

    Add in baking powder and the flour (in three times), mixing to combine.

  • Step 7/11

    Once incorporated, refrigerate the dough for at least an hour, covered.

  • Step 8/11

    Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC).

  • Step 9/11

    • Ice-cream/cookie scoop

    The dough can be sticky so dust your hands with flour to roll out 1-2 inch balls. (Or use an ice cream/cookie scoop). Arrange the balls on the prepared baking sheet. Gently flatten the balls. Don’t flatten too much, the cream cheese cookies won’t puff up otherwise.

  • Step 10/11

    Bake the cream cheese cookies for 9-11 minutes. (I did 10, but ovens can vary). Remove the cookies from the oven when you see the underside edges turning brown.

  • Step 11/11

    Allow cooling down on a wire rack and dust the cream cheese cookies with icing sugar, if you like. Enjoy!
