Cream Cheese Cookie Press Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Beat butter and cream cheese well.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, and mix well.
  3. Using a cookie press, place cookies on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes until light brown.

You can also use almond extract instead of the lemon extract. A nice Christmas touch is to tint the dough with green food coloring, then sprinkle the cookies with red sugar before baking.
