  • 1/2 cup cake flour
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon loose jasmine tea, crushed
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 8 - ounce package reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar*
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Powdered sugar (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, stir together cake flour, white whole wheat flour, and jasmine tea; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine butter and cream cheese. Beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and salt. Beat until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg white and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour mixture as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour mixture. Wrap and chill dough about 4 hours or until easy to handle.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets lined parchment paper.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or just until edges and bottoms are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to wire racks; cool. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes about 24.
