Oreo Snowflake Cookies


I usually don't go for recipes that have an ingredient i'm not familiar with. I like to stick to things I know. But when I saw this recipe for cookies using Mascarpone cheese I knew I HAD to find that cheese and make these cookies asap! I looked at a few stores and finally found it at WinCo. (I'm sure it's other places too) It's a smooth consistency cheese, thinner than cream cheese-- it came in a small tub for about $2.50 in the specialty cheeses section. I immediately returned home and whipped these cookies up. I ate a good chunk of the dough before I could even get them in the oven. It was heavenly! These cookies were amazing. So delicious and so easy. Definitely a crowd pleaser at our house.

Oreo Snowflake Cookies

1 cup butter
3 oz. mascarpone cheese
1 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
5 crushed oreos

Preheat oven to 325. Cream the butter and mascarpone cheese. Slowly beat in sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg yolk and vanilla. Slowly beat in flour until well mixed. Stir in crushed oreos. Spoon cookie dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 for 12 minutes. Makes 36 cookies.

1 cookie = 3 points (points plus)
