It’s March I’m ready for springtime fruit desserts. Plus on a cold, snowy day, it’s so much fun to stay inside and take pictures of brightly colored fruit desserts. Although to be fair, I am really enjoying the last ten inches of snow we got. I know, I’m weird, but this winter I felt like we were severely cheated on the snow front. All that came with bitter cold and freezing rain.

So I’m enjoying the gorgeousness of the snow and while staying warm inside taking pictures. Besides, according to my sister, all March is known for is for being all brown and ugly while your nose constantly. I’ll take all the pretty whiteness while we wait for spring.

Ingredients 

For the Sugar Cookies

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

For the Cheesecake Spread

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Fresh fruit for topping the cookies. I used raspberries blueberries, kiwi and mango, but feel free to use whatever is in season, or your little heart

Instructions

  • To make the cookies, preheat the oven to 300 F. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and shorting. Cream in the sugar, baking powder and salt until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat in well. Stir in the flour.
  • Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 min. Do not let them brown. Let them cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes. Remove from the tray and let cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, make the cheesecake spread. Beat the cream cheese with the sugar until light and smooth. Pour in the heavy cream and vanilla. Beginning with the mixer on slow speed, start to beat in the cream. Increase the speed of the mixer gradually until the mixture thickens.
  • Spread the cookies with a bit of the cream cheese and top with fresh fruit. These are best within a day or two of making them.

    For the cream cheese frosting it just says “1/2 powdered sugar.” Does this mean 1/2 cup or 1/2 a box or what?!

  2. Monica says

    Is there a liquid missing from the recipe? My dough was crumbly and the balls stayed in balls when baked.

      I had the same problem they’re very crumby and do not roll. I think instead of egg yolks we should’ve probably added whole eggs??

  3. BreAnne Larsen says

    For the oven temperature it says 300 degress, this just seems low to me. Will it bake alright?

    These did not come out good for me. The dough was very crumbly and wouldn’t stick together. I didn’t alter the recipe by any means and used very softened butter (not melted). The cream cheese mixture was fine but the sugar cookie was a mess, I ended up adding some more melted butter to roll the dough into balls, and they didn’t bake nicely either, it was an all around mess.

    Hi in the ingredients it says vanilla for cream cheese frosting, but it’s not in anywhere in the directions for the cream cheese?
