1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Divide dough in half; wrap in each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours until firm.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.

Love, love, love this recipe!!! It is the PERFECT cut out cookie recipe. I make it every year around Christmas and they are always a hit with just a tad bit of royal icing on top. With such delicate flavor... Perfection.
I love the taste of these sugar cookie cut-outs! Have made them the last three years;ever since I came across the recipe. Yum!
My all time favorite cookie recipe. If I make only one batch of cookies for Christmas, or any other time, this is my go to recipe. I try to make extra to freeze and have on hand when grandkids need something to do.
I found this recipe 18 years ago and I have made it every Christmas since. I cut them out and then frost with colored vanilla frosting then sprinkles. My family requests them as gifts so I package them with other cookies and fudge. No complaints here.
This cookie has allmost no flavor, it needs frosting or chocolate to make it worth eating, however they look great.
