Play Dough Cookies

Play Dough Cookies
3/4 C butter
3 ounces cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla extract
2 and 3/4 C flour
1 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
assorted food coloring (gel or paste works best)

1. In a bowl cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add
egg and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

2. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add dry
ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir until soft dough forms.
Divide dough into Fourths. Tint each with a different food coloring.
Wrap in plastic and chill for two hours. (I stuck it in the freezer
for 15 minutes because I hate to wait!)

3. Preheat oven to 350. Shape colors into 3/4 inch balls. For each
cookie place one pink, one orange, one green, and one blue ball
together and roll to make one giant ball. Roll into a 12 inch long
snake, and then starting at one end coil roll to make a cookie. Place
cookies 2 to 3 inches apart on greased cookie sheet to allow for

4. Bake for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and store in an
airtight container.Enjoy!
