  1. Cream Cheese-Filled Cookies Recipe photo by Taste of Home In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Shape into two 12-in. rolls; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
