yes they look plain and yes this is a suck-ish picture of the cookies but they are yummy and really easy. I made these hand made no hand mixer or stand mixer,  just pure bodily efforts.

so ingredients:

1/3 cup of  room temperature salted butter YES I said SALTED if you have unsalted add to your recipe a teaspoon of salt

1 medium size egg

3 oz of cream cheese

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1/2 tsp of vanilla

1/2 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp of baking soda

1/2 cups of flour

Prep:

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, cream cheese and brown sugar until all is combined. If you use electric mixer, I think you’ll do it much faster. If you use it through hand, use a spatula to mix it together until the sugar has blended well with the dairy. Add the egg and vanilla then blend it together with the mix until combined. You can use a whisk to blend it if you don’t have mixers but make sure to keep the spatula to get rid of the mixture stuck in the whisk.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients. Now this is the challenging part coz of the powdery consistency. You’ll need a lot of elbow grease by hand but still fun. If by hand, use the spatula to fold the flour mix together with the dairy mix. It may take about 5 minutes to get the consistency that look like sticky  fragile clay which is what this needs.
  3. Seal the dough with plastic wrap and chill it for about 5 hours to overnight.
Baking time:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F
2. Grease baking sheet with oil or add parchment paper (we don’t have some)
3. Shape teaspoon sized cookie dough pieces into balls and place them in the cookie sheet. You can use a scooper or spoon or measuring spoon (which I did)
4. When everything is ready, bake them for about 12 to 13 minutes. Let them cool once baked and EAT!
