Cookies, Cookies, Cookies! With a Touch of Irish too…


Since we have finally gotten rid of all candy and store bought desserts that the winter holidays bring I decided it was time to make cookies. Yummy, chewy sugar cookies that only require 6 ingredients!

 
Ingredients:
16 ounces cream cheese
1 cup butter
1 & 1/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups flour
½ teaspoon salt

Combine all the dry ingredients, then add the vanilla, butter, and cream cheese. Mix until combined, but don't over mix and chill for at least one hour.
