Cream Cheese Filled Snickerdoodles

I was planning to make a cookie tray for a party I was attending and wanted to try a new cookie recipe. Like many other "Pinheads", I went straight to Pinterest and searched for "the best cookies ever" or something like that. I pretty much started drooling when I saw these Cream Cheese Filled Snickerdoodles from Cookies and Cups. My search for "the best cookies ever" did not disappoint!

What You Need:
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Cinnamon-Sugar Mix (mix 1/4 cup sugar w 2 teaspoons cinnamon)
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  1. Make filling by mixing cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together until fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Mix in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt, using low speed.
  5. For each cookie, roll 1 tablespoon of dough into a ball and flatten into a disk approx. 2 inches diameter. Repeat - will need 2 discs for each cookie.
  6. Place 1 teaspoon of cold cream cheese mixture in middle of one disc, then place other disc on top, pressing down around edges to seal. Next, carefully roll into a ball and roll in cinnamon sugar mix.
  7. Put cookie on plate and refrigerate. After making each one, put in refrigerator. It is important that these cookies stay cold before baking.
  8. Once all cookies have been made, allow them to chill for at least 15 minutes.
  9. While cookies are chilling, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  10. Bake on parchment-lined cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes, leaving about 2 inches between cookies.
  11. Cool on wire rack.
  12. Once several on a plate for people to taste and "oooh" and "aaah" over. Then hide the rest of the cookies so you can eat them yourself. Yes...they are that good.
