Rolled Sugar Cookies with M&M's



These are one of the quick , easy ,soft and chewy rolled sugar cookies that i have ever tried.My son enjoys rolling the cookies in colored sprinkles.I make 3-4 batches of these cookies to take back to India when we go to visit our parents , relatives and friends .They all love these cookies because it is yummy and egg less.

Ingredients

In a large bowl cream together butter,cream cheese,sugar until creamy. Add the egg replacer/eggs,sugar,vanilla and beat 2 more minutes.

Scrap down the bowl.Add Flour and beat until well mixed.

Divide the dough in to 2 equal parts and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Roll the cookies in parchment paper 1/8" thick.Cut out any shape you want with the cookie cutters. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges of the cookies are light brown.Remove from the cookie sheet and let it cool completely.

Note - For this recipe i used 1 1/2 tsp egg replacer and 3 tbs warm water.
If you are planning to put M&M's on the cookies -press the M&M's on the cookie when they are still warm.
If you are an almond fan use 1/2 tsp of almond extract and 1/2 tsp vanilla.

Believe me or not I was wondering whether EnerG would work in rolled sugar cookies and wow you have it here. Thanks for another entry. I'm so sorry for such a late acknowledgment though!

Also thank you for your comment in my About page. No wonder you are a cake decorating pro! I will definitely contact you with questions regarding cake decorating because I usually spread the frosting. That's about it when it comes to cake decoration.
