Four Different Cookies from One Cream Cheese Dough Recipe

The turkey leftovers are finally gone and for most foodies that means “Baking Season” has officially begun.  If the truth be told, I’ve been in full cookie production mode for over a week now.  I love having home baked goodies around to send to the neighbors and friends around the holidays.  It gives me a good chance to thank them for all of the beautiful baked breads and fresh veggies from their gardens that they have shared with me throughout the year.

Let me tell you, getting anything (even a mini zucchini) from an Arizona garden is a lot of work.  So,  I like my plates of cookies to be filled with different varieties of flavors and toppings and to look like I have gone to as much trouble as they have.

I shared my “super secret cookie multiplying technique” in a guest post for my friend Deborah  who has just had a brand  new baby boy.  Head on over to her fantastic blog, Taste and Tell, and get all the info on how to change my favorite Holiday Cream Cheese Cookie Dough into as many different shapes and flavors as you can come up with… the possibilities are endless!

    Hey Donna! Four different cookies with one cream cheese dough recipe?! Awesome! So I finally got a chance to stop by your two blogs. They are both beautiful blogs that I will definitely be coming back to. It was wonderful meeting you at BlogHer Pro, and thank you for befriending me so kindly. As a newbie to Blogging conferences it was a little intimidating for me, but after meeting such nice people such as yourself and hearing their stories, I felt a little better. Glad to have met you hopefully we’ll see each other again sometime :).
