  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Set the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and whisk them together.

In a stand mixer or in a large dish with an electric hand mixer, combine the butter and cream cheese.

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and creamy. After adding the egg and vanilla essence, scrape the sides of the basin and give it another good stir.

Then add the flour mixture and beat until just blended. To ensure there are no unmixed particles remaining, use a spatula to scrape the bottom of the bowl. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and portion out the dough into two-teaspoon-sized portions. Roll into a ball after dampening your hands.

The baking sheet should be lined with parchment paper or silicone. You should bake the cookies for around 10 minutes on the center rack of your oven. As soon as the edge of the cookies has set and is just beginning to develop color, they are done. Cookies will harden as they cool, so wait until they are at room temperature before eating.

A thin sprinkle of white chocolate or powdered sugar may add visual appeal to cookies after baking.
