Baking is an enjoyable part of the Holiday season. I have been extremely spoiled, every season there is something homemade my mom makes for us from apple sauce to pies to cookies to candy. I always enjoyed assisting her in baking, especially during the Christmas season. It has been difficult for me to bake on my own because of POTS and a lack of energy. I am going to share some cookie recipes with you. Some are spoonie friendly, others just taste good and are worth sharing.

Philly Cream Cheese Cookies
1 (8 ounce) package of Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup of softened butter
1 cup of powdered sugar
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon mint extract
Combine ingredients. Allow dough to chill for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 325. Bake 10-12 minutes. Makes about three dozen cookies.
Preheat oven: 350
1 cup of butter
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup of cornstarch
Being on your feet for too long is draining. I recommend sitting while making cookies. Using an electric mixer can help conserve energy as well. Take breaks in between, if needed.
