Cream Cheese Cookies

 1/2 cup softened butter

8 oz softened  cream  cheese

2 cups white sugar

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp almond extract

2 eggs

3 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Cream the butter, the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the  eggs and extracts.   When well mixed, add the flour, salt and baking powder.  Mix until well blended.   Place in a covered dish and chill at least three hours, overnight is better.   The dough will be very sticky.  When ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  With wet hands, form the dough into balls and flatten slightly. Place the balls on a cookie sheet about 2-3 inches apart.   Bake for 11-12 minutes, until the bottoms are just slightly starting to brown.   Cool slightly on the cookie sheet, then place on a cooling rack until completely cooled.   Enjoy!   These are addictive!
