With some research on how to best use up some cream cheese on hand, I had created these cream cheese cookies.
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 cup soften butter
6 ounce cream cheese (it is what I had on hand. Haven't tried it with the full 8 ounce block)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine dry ingredients, set aside. Cream butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Add in the dry ingredients. Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes. Form into 1 inch balls and coat in sugar. Place on baking sheet and press down slightly. Bake 8-10 minutes until set. Only the bottoms should be golden brown.
