Cookies for Santa: Cream Cheese Cookie Recipe

For as long as I can remember, we've made these cookies for Santa to put out on Christmas Eve.

They are SO so good, and so easy!

If you're looking for a new family tradition or want to switch up what you're giving to Santa each year, give these cookies a try!

1/2 stick of butter- softened
1- 8oz. package of cream cheese- softened
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 box yellow cake mix

yields: 50-60 bite-size cookies

Using an electric beater or mixer, mix butter and cream cheese together.
Add egg yolk and vanilla.
Add cake mix (1/3 of box at a time). Blend. (May need to mix last 1/3 by hand)
Wrap in wax paper and chill for at least 30 minutes.
If you're in a time crunch, toss in the freezer for a few minutes... you're just hardening the dough a bit to make it easier to create the cookie dough balls.
Shape into balls the size of a quarter.
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.

Merry Christmas Eve, friends!
