1. Combine all ingredients but flour and egg white. Blend. Add flour gradually. Mix well.

3. Heat oven to 375.



4a. Cut-out cookies: roll 1/3 of dough at a time on lightly floured surface to 1/8 thickness and make shapes using cookie cutters



4b. Ball cookies: make 1" balls & press slightly once on sheet.



5. If desired, brush with egg white and sprinkle colored sugar on cookies.



6. Bake 7-10 min. Cool completely.



7. If desired, frost or decorate cooled cookies.

Notes

The cream cheese and almond make a delightful & unexpected flavor combination. You can roll out the dough to make shaped cookies or you can make simple round ball cookies.
