Play Dough Cookies

I got this recipe from my blogging buddy Emily

3/4 C butter
3 ounces cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla extract
2 and 3/4 C flour
1 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
assorted food coloring (gel or paste works best)

In a bowl cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy.
Add egg and vanilla. Beat until smooth. In a bowl combine flour,
baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to the creamed
mixture. Stir until soft dough forms. Divide dough into Fourths.
Tint each with a different food coloring. Wrap in plastic and
chill for two hours. Preheat oven to 350. Shape colors into
3/4 inch balls. For each cookie place one pink, one orange,
one green, and one blue ball together and roll to make
one giant ball. Roll into a 12 inch long snake, and then
starting at one end coil roll to make a cookie. Place cookies
2 to 3 inches apart on greased cookie sheet to allow for
spreading. Bake for 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
