    Debaylady's Note:

    This recipe comes from a Southern Living paperback called Christmas Cookies. You can decorate these with colored sugar crystals, assorted candies, and or sprinkles if you so desire! I have a fondness for cookies with cream cheese and enjoy these. Sometimes I use almond or anise flavoring. Note added Dec. 2013: It seems improvements are in need so I am making corrections which are my own since I cannot find the original recipe. I am sorry for the mishaps you have had with the given recipe. I may recommend dividing the dough in thirds and working with smaller amounts.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 48



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Changes were made to the amount of cream cheese, flour, and the addition of 1 egg yolk. I found this made a delicious cookie. If you like you may add up to 1/2 teaspoons salt. We are sensitive to sodium so I use as little as possible.
    2. 2
      Cream together butter and cream cheese in a large mixing bowl.
    3. 3
      Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy.
    4. 4
      Add egg yolk and beat well.
    5. 5
      Stir in vanilla extract.
    6. 6
      Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture, beating until well blended.
    7. 7
      Shape dough into 3 balls and chill thoroughly at least 25 minutes.
    8. 8
      Press dough from a cookie press 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets, using desired shaping discs.
    9. 9
      If desired, sprinkle with sugar crystals, etc. to decorate.
    10. 10
      Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until very lightly browned.
    11. 11
      Remove to wire racks to cool.
    12. 12
      May decorate with colored icing, if desired.
    13. 13
      Yield: About 4 dozen.

      Too good to be true! Thought I could make quick x mas cookies with my 4 year old ... What a disaster. Cannot put dough into spritzer -- too sticky... After refrigerating for 2 hours!! Threw out 1/2 of dough. Wish I would have read comments before. So annoyed, I signed up for just to share in this annoying experience !!

      If you are planning on using this with a cookie press then dont bother. Way to gooey even after extensive refridgeration. It was just blob after blob that came spilling out of my cookie press.

      This came out terribly for me. I ended up with a pan full of flat dough. Are eggs missing in the recipe?
