Here is a sugar cookie dough that uses a small amount of
sugar! This rolls out well and is fun to cut into shapes for
2 c. flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. butter, softened
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 medium-size eggs, well
Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; set
aside. In large bowl cream butter and cheese until well
blended. Stir in flour mixture. Add eggs; mixing to form a
stiff dough. Chill until firm enough to roll out; several
hours or overnight. Roll out 1/4 of dough at a time on lightly
floured surface, preferably with stockinette-covered rolling
pin to slightly less than 1/4 inch thickness (keep remainder
chilled). Cut in desired shapes; smaller cutters of approxi-
mately 1 3/4 inches work the best. Cookies may be decorated
with sprinkles or place a small drop (1/4 teaspoon) preserves
in the center. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake in preheated 375 degrees oven about 15 minutes or until golden.
Remove to racks to cool. Makes about 78.
