Need:

½ c. unsalted butter, room temperature
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, room temperature
1 egg
½ tsp. almond extract, opt.

Sprinkle with a few extra sprinkles & roll in powdered sugar, completely covering the dough ball. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Repeat. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet for two minutes before removing to wire rack. Makes approximately 42 small cookies.

Again, please forgive the exhaustion!

Today’s eyeshadow palette was WET n WILD Coloricon Eyeshadow Trio “I’m Getting Sunburned.” I really like it, but it isn’t something I would wear everyday.

The colors are gorgeous! This picture truly doesn’t do them justice.

 

If you try the trio, let me know your thoughts!
