Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies

Oh my!  I think these babies are just delightful.  I am a chocolate girl and I loved these cookies.  They remind me of the wedding cookies with a hint of lemon.  I truly could not stop eating them!  They look like snowball cookies so they would be a perfect Christmas treat!  I apologize that the pictures have not been the best lately - not enough time or light.  We will just have to work on it!

Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies

3/4 cup butter, room temperature
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
1 Tbsp lemon zest
2 tsp lemon juice
2 cups cake flour
1 cup chopped pecans

Cream butter and cream cheese until fluffy;  Gradually beat in sugar and beat hard.  Stir in vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest.  Add flour, mixing well.  Add nuts.  Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough and line cookies on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 300 for 20 to 25 minutes.  Roll in powdered sugar while hot!
