Two-Tone Cinnamon Cookies
Ingredients
1
3 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/2
teaspoon baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1
egg
1 1/2
teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4
1
recipe Cinnamon Glaze (see recipe below)
1
recipe White Glaze (see recipe below)
Directions
  1. In a large bowl, combine butter and cream cheese. Beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add powdered sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Beat until combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Cover and chill about 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough until 1/4 inch thick. Using a fluted round 3-1/2-inch cookie cutter, cut out dough. Place cutouts 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool.
  4. Fill a small resealable plastic bag with Cinnamon Glaze; snip off one small corner. Set aside. Spoon White Glaze over tops of cookies, spreading almost to the edges. Place cookies on a wire rack set over waxed paper. Drizzle with Cinnamon Glaze. If desired, gently swirl a knife through glazes to marble. (Reheat either glaze in the microwave if necessary.) Let stand until glazes are set. Makes about 14 cookies.
