Step 1

* Heat your oven to 375 degrees and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.

* Place butter and cream cheese in your mixer bowl and beat for 1 minute.

* Beat in the sugar and baking powder.

* Add the egg and vanilla and 'Beat Until Fluffy.'

* Beat in the flour.

* Chill for 30 minutes for drop/roll cookies, one hour for cut-out cookies.

* Scoop by rounded teaspoon full and dredge drop cookies (roll balled cookies) in superfine sugar.

* Bake for 7 minutes.

* Cool for 1 minute on cookie sheet then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

* You'll get no less than 2 dozen dropped or rolled cookies out of this dough. The yield on cut-outs will depend on how big the shapes are (baking time remains the same).
