Cream Cheese Pecan Cookies

Cream Cheese Pecan Cookies

After searching for a quick easy cookie, I finally found one! These cookies are super easy and have a great texture and taste! I love the addition of the almond extract as it adds a little something extra. I usually always have these ingredients around so they are really quick to bring together.

Make sure the cream cheese and butter are really soft since it makes creaming them with the sugar so much easier. The best part about making these cookies??? No eggs in the dough, feel free to lick the spatula clean!

Calvin watched as I made these and got very excited when they came out of the oven! There was no mistaking what he wanted, with all his pointing and yelling, haha!
