Cream Cheese Cookies

'Twas the night before Christmas, and YOU FORGOT SANTA'S COOKIES! Cream Cheese Cookies are a quick and easy cookie made with ingredients you usually have on hand...it's a simple cookie, but superior to the sugar cookie in my opinion! Note: this recipe does not use eggs or baking soda...it is not a mistake.
Servings 2 dozen
