Almond Cream Cheese Crinkles

When I started making these cookies, my family essentially thought I was crazy.

But when these babies came out of the oven, they quickly learned to trust me!! 

We made about 9 different kinds of cookies on an all day baking spree last Saturday and this cookie is the one cookie that is already gone. And has been gone for a few days. Yes, we did make a few cookie platters with them but we ate the majority of them and I am already planning on making another batch next week.

The almond  flavor is really pronounced and while many people I gave these to said they didn't like almond, they changed their mind after they tasted the cookie. The cookie is almost like a small little pillow of goodness!

Be sure to bake them up this Holiday Season!!

Almond Cream Cheese Crinkles
adapted from this recipe at Plain Chicken


1 box yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 stick butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese, softened

  1. In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, egg, almond extract, cream cheese and butter in a mixer (or with a hand held mixer.)
  2. Cover dough and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 325.
  4.  Roll dough into 1-inch balls and roll each cookie ball in powdered sugar. 
  5. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes. 
  6. The tops will look under cooked, but the bottoms will be golden brown. 
  7. Allow to cool completely before serving.
