I have been making these cookies for many years. I originally found the recipe in one of those cooking magazines, which you'll find near the checkout counter at your grocery store... Pillsbury's Simply From Scratch Recipes Volume 3 (1981). Now-a-days, I mainly use this recipe to make my Valentine heart-shaped cookies for Valentine's Day, and will use a 3-inch cookie cutter. In the end you will get 66 heart shaped cookies. This recipe makes for one heck of a sugar cookie, which you will enjoy! If you love cream cheese, and sugar cookies, you will LOVE this cookie recipe.
