    Lalaloula's Note:

    These tasty little vanilla morsels come from the German baking book "Cookies" by Christa Schmedes. They are classified as low-fat cookies there and at first I was a bit sceptical about them. But I neednt have worried, they were super! I hope youll enjoy them too for a guilt-free holiday treat. Note: Prep time includes 30 minutes chill time.

    1. 1
      Melt butter in a small sauce-pan.
    2. 2
      In a big bowl cream the cream cheese, butter and egg.
    3. 3
      In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and vanilla. Gradually add this to the cream cheese mixture.
    4. 4
      Form dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
    5. 5
      Now either take small lumps of dough (aobut 1 ts) and roll between your fingers to form a long thickish string. Shape this into a pretzel or a curly loop. Or simply form into balls (size of a walnut).
    6. 6
      Place on a paper-lined cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 180°C/390°F or until tester comes out clean.
    7. 7
      If using the glaze, mix together icing sugar and enough water to make a paste. Spread onto cooled cookies.

      These have a very nice flavor ~ even without the icing, though mine were a little dry. I did make these gluten-free so that may have had an effect as well since I used GF baking flour. I used my new KitchenAide mixer to mix the dough, so I may have overdone it a bit :) My dough was sticky, so I just made these into small balls and iced after cooling. Very nice little cookie, I made them for my Christmas cookie tray and this will be a keeper recipe. Thanks Lalaloula ~ made for HOLIDAY PRMR, December 2009!
