Yield 20 cookies
15m prep time
10m cook time
1h inactive


1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
4 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Powdered sugar, for dusting


Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer.

Add sugar and beat 1 minute. Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined.

In three additions, add baking powder, flour, and salt, and mix to combine.

Cover dough and chill 1 hour.

Once chilled, dust hands with flour and roll dough into balls between 1-2 inches.

Set out on prepared baking sheet 2-inches apart and flatten gently with your fingers.

Bake 9-11 minutes. The top should remain pale while the bottoms should be golden.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool, then dust with powdered sugar to serve. Enjoy!
