Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies (T&T)




  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cream shortening, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks and extract beating well.
  3. Mix flour and salt together in a bowl. Add to creamed mixture in 3 additions, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Fill press and make desired shapes on ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned around edges.

This is a tried and true method of achieving consistency every time.

I make a variety of spritz cookies and this is the best cream cheese cookie that I have found. I sometimes like to substitute 1 teaspoon coconut and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract for the lemon or orange extract. The combination of coconut and almond is wonderful. Play around with the extracts and see which one you like.
