Best Cream Cheese Cookies EVER!

I have been addicted to my aunt’s cookie recipe! Hovering over them at family get togethers was definitely my guilty pleasure. She always made special little delights and I enjoyed every single one. She definitely has a knack for throwing parties and such. She was ever so kind to share this recipe with me when I moved to Florida and now I would like to share it with you. So lets get started,

What you’ll need: 

3 ½ Cups of flour
1 tsp of Baking POWDER  (emphasis on the powder part always) 
1 Cup of softened butter (equivalent to two sticks)
8oz package of softened cream cheese
2 cups of sugar
1 egg
1 tsp of vanilla
1 tsp of almond extract 

Mix the flour and baking POWDER in a bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, softened butter, softened cream cheese and sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg, vanilla, and almond extract,then beat well. While beating, gradually add flour mixture . Divide dough into three balls. 

*She says to refrigerate over night, but I only refrigerate for a few hours. 

Make balls and flatten, place on an UNGREASED cookie sheet. Bake cookies for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F . and let cool. 

For the icing melt white chocolate. Place the melted chocolate into a ziplock baggy and cut the tip off (Very Little)  and drizzle over cookies and let harden.
