Play Dough Cookies

I found this recipe on another blog called Simple Dinners. I thought my son would really like them so we made them last night. They were really fun cookies to make & we loved them. While eating one, he said: "These are my favorite of all your recipes. Can we make these EVERY day?"

3/4 C butter

3 ounces cream cheese

1 cup white sugar

1 egg

1 t vanilla extract

2 and 3/4 C flour

1 t baking powder

1/4 t salt

assorted food coloring (gel or paste works best)

1. In a bowl cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

2. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir until soft dough forms. Divide dough into Fourths. Tint each with a different food coloring. Wrap in plastic and chill for one hour. (or in freezer for 15 min.)

3. Preheat oven to 350. Shape colors into 3/4 inch balls. For each cookie place one pink, one orange, one green, and one blue ball together and roll to make one giant ball. Roll into a 12 inch long snake, and then starting at one end coil roll to make a cookie. Place cookies 2 to 3 inches apart on greased cookie sheet to allow for spreading.

4. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and store in an airtight container.
