Looking at my photo of cream cheese pound cake, it looks like any old loaf of bread. But looks can be deceiving, as this is no ordinary loaf. In fact, it's very un-bread-like. I think calling it a big sugar cookie (in the form of a loaf cake) is a better description.
And that's exactly what it reminded me of: a sugar cookie, but just a bit softer. It was sweet and buttery, just like a sugar cookie. And gone from my counter in no time flat, just like a sugar cookie.
The recipe is from Martha Stewart's Cakes - thank you, Martha!
