Chewy Sugar Cookies

Cream cheese and melted butter create the ‘chewiness’ in these great tasting sugar cookies.


Combine the ingredients until a smooth dough forms. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes to allow the flours to absorb the moisture (this will prevent ‘grittiness’).

Use a teaspoon or tablespoon size cookie scoop to shape the dough and place on a lined baking sheet. For extra flavor and a crunchy crust, you can roll the balls in a bit of granulated sugar. Gently press down the cookies to flatten slightly (to 1/2″) and bake.
