Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies

Another new cookie that I had never made before.  Not my favorite cookie to be sure.  But they were tasty and are very pretty on a plate.  They are very easy and for that reason, I will probably make them again.  I will try to tweak the recipe each time to make the cookie better.  Let you know if I get a better result!

  • 2-1/2 c. sifted flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. softened butter
  • 1 3 oz package cream cheese
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 egg yolk, and beaten
  • 1 tsp. or vanilla or other liqueur or flavoring (I used 1 tsp coconut and 1/2 tsp almond)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Sift and combine flour, salt, and cinnamon. Beat butter and cream cheese together until well combined. Add sugar, while let a time, beating after each addition until well blended. Beat in 1 yolk and vanilla.
Sift and add dry ingredients to butter mixture and blend all together well. Packed dough into cookie press. Press onto cold cookie sheets. Top with sprinkles before baking.  Bake 10-15 minutes or until just set to touch.  Place on cooling rack.
