Natali’s “Sugar Dream” Cookies
Recipe Type: Dessert, Cookies
Author: Natali Carrera
  • 2 sticks of butter (1/2 lb.)
  • 3 T cream cheese (full fat please)
  • 1 T milk (I used non-fat)
  • 1.5 t vanilla extract
  • 2 c. + 2 T sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. salt
  • 4 c. flour
  1. Cream together the butter, cream cheese, milk, vanilla and sugar until well blended. (About 3 minutes on medium speed)
  2. Add the egg yolk and oil, mixing on low speed.
  3. Once the previous ingredients are incorporated, add the baking soda salt and flour. It is best to mix the baking soda and salt into the flour with a whisk prior to adding to the mixing bowl.
  4. Refrigerate the dough for 2-4 hours.
  5. Roll the dough into balls and press to flatten slightly on a cookie sheet lined with either parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet. You want the cookies to be a pretty good size, abound 2 inches or a little larger. Space cookies at least an inch apart.
  6. Bake for approximately nine minutes. The cookies should be only slightly golden on the edges. Overcooking this recipe significantly alters the texture of the cookie, so be sure to set a timer and check by eight minutes.
  7. Allow the cookies to cool for 2-3 minutes before moving to a cooling rack to avoid breakage.
  8. Enjoy!
