Cream Cheese Cookies

It's been a while since I posted a recipe and I thought what better week than Thanksgiving week!

I LOVE these cookies. I got this recipe from the grandmother of the little ones I used to nanny for. She is the BEST. I loved when she would visit for the holidays. We would let the kids play and just bake all afternoon. She was so fun and the kids loved having her there. The first time she made them I swear I ate 20 in one day. They are sooo good. They are kinda like a sugar cookie but super gooey and soft since they're made with cream cheese. Funny story, when I made them the other day, her recipe read this way.. 1 6oz of cream cheese. At first it looked like one 6 oz of cream cheese. But then as I thought about it I was thinking.. what if it's supposed to be 16oz since they come in packages of 8oz each? So I text her and proceeded with the 16oz. I had everything in my mixer when she text back and said it only calls for 6oz. Good thing I hadn't started it! The cream cheese was still in the block so I just scooped it out and I plan on using it in another crockpot recipe! Don't judge! ;)

Gather all your ingredients

Mix em' all together

Take some pictures of the pretty sprinkles

Roll em' all around in those pretty sprinkles
Take some more lame pictures with your iPhone when they've finished baking
Serve them at small group on a pretty platter with a pumpkin place card holder :)

What's in em:
6 oz cream cheese
2 cups softened margarine 
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
5 cups flour

*Now, I realize that is a lot. I would recommend cutting it in half if you don't want 75 cookies like I got! 

Here's what ya do:

1. Mix it all together
2. roll into small balls
3. roll in sugar, sprinkles and anything fun you can find that tastes like candy
4. Flatten with a fork
5. Bake for 12 minutes @350

Happy baking friends! :)
