Raspberry Rose Tequila Kombucha.
I have the cutest, softest and fluffiest cream cheese sugar cookies to share today!
I really could not be more excited about these cookies. These were actually supposed to be Tuesday’s post, but after I photographed them, I knew they needed to be a Friday post. For some reason I feel like Friday’s posts just need to be super fun, and that’s what these cookie are…fun, easy and so, so, so delicious.
Ok and cute. I really cannot get over how cute these cookies are. Normally I am not a heart person. I’m not even a person who likes pink for that matter, but I love these cookies and am so excited to finally to talk all about them today.
These are the softest, fluffiest and most delicious sugar cookies I have yet to make. They’re simple to make and the perfect Valentine’s Day treat…of course they also make for a delicious, sweet cookie for pretty much any other time of the year too. Yes, please!
Before I dive face first into these cookies…Happy Friday!! It feels weird that the weekend is already here. Did anyone else’s week fly by?
As always, I’m pretty excited for the weekend, but per typical Tieghan fashion, I have lots of work planned for my weekend. Today and Saturday are going to be spent creating more recipe videos with my brother Malachi. I feel pretty lucky that I get to work with my brother, as opposed to just another film guy. It makes the whole working on the weekend thing actually fun. Kai, is away at school most of the time, so it’s fun to have him come home once a month and film. It doesn’t feel as much like work. Got to love when work is fun and doable, and when you get some family time in there too!
Not sure what my Sunday plans are just yet, but be sure to check back here both tomorrow and Sunday. I have a special Saturday post this week and some more fun Valentine’s Day inspired things coming at you on Sunday…so stay tuned!
What are you guys up to this weekend? Someone please leave me a comment saying either, one that you are headed out to play in the snow, or two, that you are making these cookies, or three (my personal favorite), that you are both playing in the snow and making cookies! I will be doing both for sure. 🙂
So these Soft and Fluffy Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies. Honestly, aren’t they the prettiest?
Best part? Just like Tuesday’s cupcakes, these are all naturally dyed using my current favorite vegetable, beets! I still cannot get over these fun shades of pink and the fact that just a teaspoon of beet juice did the trick. I think it’s so cool. And no, you do not taste an ounce of beet anything. I promise. These are kid tested and kid LOVED. Meaning Asher has devoured each and every single one of the cookies I sent up to the house (and come back down for more!). And, yes, she too is in love with their cuteness. She was so excited to see these cookies when she came over the other week.
Her words, “Tieg, they are soooo cute! Too cute to eat…ahh, wait never mind, can I have one?”.
Man, I love that little girl. The things that come out of her mouth. Priceless.
Anyway, I think it’s pretty clear that I too love these cookies. But for more than just their major cute factor. These are some of the best sugar cookies. They’re soft and fluffy on the inside and out. To me, that’s the perfect sugar cookie. The cream cheese is the secret to keeping these so soft and light, while the vanilla adds ample flavor.
These are also really simple to make and would be perfect to bake up with kids…or maybe just your girlfriends for a Girl’s Night In… sounds like fun!
The one thing I always do with my sugar cookies is roll them out and cut the shapes before chilling the dough. Once the shapes are cut and on the pan, then I chill them. I swear, this is so much easier and so much less time-consuming. <–trust me, this is a game changing tip.
So what do you guys think, can it be a snow filled cookie making weekend?

Sounds pretty good to me! Let’s do this!
ps. I think dried roses make just about everything prettier. I am obsessed.
Hello!! I love cream cheese cookies, am I able to just scoop the cookie dough into balls instead of cutting them out!? How would you change the recipe for this? Thank you!
I would just use a round cookie cutter:) I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give them a try! xTieghan
Hey Tieghan! Do you have a cream cheese frosting recipe that would work for these cookies? Thank you
You could follow the buttercream frosting for these cookies:
I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan
Wondering if I could make these with gluten free flour? I made these and they are delicious and icing is so pretty!
I am thrilled you enjoyed the recipe. Thanks for giving it a try! Yes, I would use an equal amount of GF flour. xTieghan
