This sensational sugar cookie is one that I found in "Taste of Home". The combination of extracts and the addition of cream cheese make them the tastiest and tenderest of treats! I was always a "cookie klutz" when it came to cut-out cookies, but with a few chef tricks up my sleeve and a darn good recipe, I made some cookies last Christmas that looked and tasted as if they came from the bakery. The frosting is from my Good Housekeeping cookbook. The recipe may seem long but that's because I've added some notes along the way. They're really very easy to make! I'll definitely be baking them again this season, so Santa won't be skipping my house-naughty or not!
