DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Cream together butter and cream cheese in a large mixing bowl.
  • Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg yolk and beat well.
  • Stir in vanilla extract.
  • Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture, beating until well blended.
  • Shape dough into 3 balls and chill thoroughly at least 25 minutes.
  • Press dough from a cookie press 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets, using desired shaping discs.
  • If desired, sprinkle with sugar crystals, etc. to decorate.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until very lightly browned.
  • Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • May decorate with colored icing, if desired.
  • Yield: About 4 dozen.
