Nuna's Cookies

Makes: 3 dozen

Description: This is my Grandmother's cookie recipe. Great for dipping in coffee or tea!

8 oz  cream cheese, softened
1 stick  butter softened
1 stick  margarine softened
1 cup  sugar
4  eggs
2 tsp  vanilla
5 tsp  baking powder
5 cups  flour

Instructions: Sift flour and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine cream cheese, butter and margarine with mixer. Add sugar and beat until smooth and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and continue beating until fluffy. Add flour mixture (will be very stiff)
Shape like pretzels and place on UNgreased baking sheets.
Bake at 350F until lightly browned on bottom. Cookies will not be brown on top when done. Only the bottom.
Dip into any cake icing vanilla or cream cheese flavor and place on wax paper to dry. Nuna liked to use the vanilla icing with a couple of drops of ANISETTE mixed in and spinkle them with colored sugar.
