Cream Cheese Logs

Moist, chewy, creamy… these Cream Cheese Logs are delicious! Plus, they only need 4 ingredients making them super easy to put together.

A couple tips for making these:  they will not grow much in the oven so you usually get them all on one baking dish and don’t skip the second roll in powdered sugar.  I promise, that second roll, makes all the difference in flavor and appearance!
