It’s July! How is it July already?
Time flies when you are having fun, and that’s alright with me.It’s been crazy around here. My sister got married last weekend, so we were running around like chickens with our heads cut off. Bless my mom, because the wedding was at her house!
I was Matron of Honor, and I made the wedding cake. It was just a small two tier cake, but my sister asked me months ago to make for them. They had a dessert bar, but wanted an actual cake to cut, so I aim to please. The flavor they wanted required a cream cheese frosting, so I got a huge block of cream cheese from Costco, which meant we had a lot of cream cheese left over.
I wanted to make something cute and patriotic for the holiday, and my mom wanted me to get that huge block out of her fridge.
Well, lets just say these Cream Cheese Shortbread bites were a hit! These are a little different than your traditional shortbread. A little softer and creamier, if a cookie can be creamy? Just sweet enough with a slight tang. basically delicious.
Can we just talk about the cute little hand that was stealing cookies and sprinkles while I was tryign to take pictures?
I added some cute festive sprinkles for the Fourth of July, but you can change out the color or shape of the sprinkles and use this recipe for any holiday or event.
This little guy approved!
