Amys Amazing Cookies...

My friend Amy, is an amazing baker.. Every year she bakes the cutest Valentines cookies for the annual Tallahassee Alumnae scholarship luncheon. The recipe comes from a recipe contest that was printed in Taste of Home magazine in the late 1990s. ENJOY!!

"White Velvet Cutouts"
2 cups butter, at room temperature
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 1/2 cups flour
Cream the butter and cream cheese, then add the sugar and cream until smooth and fluffy. Add the egg yolks and vanilla and mix until fully combined. Add flour gradually, and blend until just combined. Split dough into 4 parts, wrap each one in plastic wrap and chill for at least 4 hours (overnight is better).

Preheat oven to 350 F. Roll out dough to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness, cut into shapes and bake 10-12 minutes until lightly golden brown.

Frosting is powdered sugar and water, mixed together to a nice thick, but spreadable consistency. Add vanilla (or other flavor) and/or food coloring as you like.
