Delectable, flaky and absolutely delicious in taste, these creamcheese cookies are definitely worth a try. The rich combination of butter and cream cheese makes these cookies positively drool worthy. These are addictive, irresistible and delightful, besides these are quite simple to make too. They contain vanilla and hint of almond essence which makes it really tasty

I have prepared the cookies with homemade cream cheese, you can check the recipe by clicking the link

I had prepared these cookies originally with egg 3 years ago, it had absolutely melt in mouth taste. During this pandemic, I decided to prepare them again but without egg. I have tried to replicate the same taste with egg-less cookies . Do not over bake these cookies else you would lose the soft flaky taste of these cookies

*Add 1 egg to the recipe if you want complete melt in mouth taste. Adding almonds extract is optional but it adds the oomph to these cookies

**Adjust sweetness to your taste. Castor sugar is best for this recipe

***You can freeze the dough upto 2 months. Skip salt is using salted butter

***Do not add additional flour to the recipe, measure precisely. All ingredients must be at room temperature

Do watch the video foe better clarity in preparation and share your experience once you prepare the cookies
