Cuisine: American
Servings: 20 Cookies


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
  • 2 oz. Cream Cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Egg replacer powder whisked in 3tbsp Water (or 1 large Egg)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp Almond extract
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt


  • Beat butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2~3 minutes in a stand mixer or using a hand mixer. Make sure to scrape the edges.
  • Add the egg replacer mixer (or egg), vanilla and almond extracts. Mix well until combined.
  • In the meantime, whisk flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and beat until just combined. Once the dough comes together, turn off the mixer and divide the dough into 2 pieces. If you want to make the cookies later, then wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place it in a freezer safe bag and freeze for up to 1 month*.
  • If making right away, then place the dough ball between 2 large pieces of parchment and roll out into ¼"~⅛" thick rectangle. Place the rolled out dough in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Take the dough out of the fridge and cut out the cookies using your favorite cookie cutters. Place them on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 8~12 minutes depending on the thickness of the cookies. Re-roll the scraps and cut out more cookies.
  • Remove the baked cookies from the oven onto a wire rack. Using a spatula place them on a wire rack to cool completely before decorating. Repeat with the remaining dough.


  • Place the dough in the fridge to thaw overnight. Then roll out the dough and put it back in the fridge for 1 hour. Then follow the rest of the instructions as in the recipe.
