Playdough Cookies

These are good ones to make with your kids!

Playdough Cookies

3/4 c. butter, softened
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
3 1/2 - 4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
food coloring
lollipop sticks

Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar.
Add egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt.
Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture.
Add enough flour to form a soft dough that wont stick to your hands.
Divide dough into four sections.
Tint each with a different color (I used orange, pink, blue and green).
Put each in a plastic bag.
Chill for 2 hours.

Form small balls (3/4") with the dough.
For each cookie, take one ball of each color and combine them to make a larger ball.
Then roll it out (like a snake).
Starting at one end, coil it to make a lollipop shape.
Place 3" apart on a baking sheet.
Carefully insert lollipop sticks into the cookies.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
