Soft Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

I have something to admit, last winter I tried making sugar cookies and failed miserably. I’m not talking “just didn’t turn out”, I’m talking “wouldn’t hold a shape, crumbled everywhere and generally tasted like crap”. After that little experience, sugar cookies have made me a bit nervous. Almost egg white nervous….yes, it really was that bad. But what better way to get over your fears then to jump right back in the saddle! I found this recipe online, added my own twists to it then took it for a test drive, and am I ever happy I did!

So one day as I’m making eggs, I happened to have goat cheese in my fridge and chives in my freezer (chives freeze great if you didn’t know!). Now I love the combination of eggs and chives, as well as goat cheese and chives, but it occurred to me that I had never put all three together. Fortunately that problem didn’t last long. Soon after, I was chowing down on the most delicious, creamy and flavourful scrambled eggs I have ever made! If you’re a goat cheese lover like me you NEED to make these!
