Ready In:
7 dozen cookies




  • Preheat the oven to 375°F If you're making shaped cookies using a cookie press, chill two ungreased baking sheets in the freezer while you make the dough.
  • Beat together the butter, sugar, cream cheese, salt, vanilla, Fiori di Sicilia, and zest.
  • Beat in the egg yolk, then stir in the flour.
  • If you're using a cookie press, follow the directions that come with the press to pipe cookies onto the chilled baking sheets.
  • If you're not using a cookie press, simply drop the dough by the teaspoonful onto the ungreased baking sheets. Top with coarse white sparkling sugar or colored sugar, if desired.
  • Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, until they're brown around the edges.
  • Remove from the oven, and wait 5 minutes before transferring the cookies to racks to cool. Be sure to move the cookies before they're totally cool, as otherwise they may stick to the baking sheet.
  • Store completely cool cookies airtight, at room temperature, for up to a week; freeze for longer storage.

<p>I'm originally from Atlanta, GA, but I now live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, cat, and dog. I'm a film and video editor, but cooking is my main hobby - if you can call something you do multiple times a day a hobby. <br />I enjoy all types of food, from molecular gastronomy to 70's suburban Mom type stuff. While I like to make recipes from cookbooks by true chefs, I don't turn my nose up at Campbell's Cream of Mushroom - I'm not a food snob. <br /> I love foods from all nations/cultures, and I am fortunate enough to live in NYC so I can go to restaurants which serve food from pretty much anywhere on the globe. Because of this most of my recipes tend to be in the Western European/American food tradition - I find it easier to pay the experts for more complicated delicacies such as Dosai, Pho &amp; Injera. I really enjoy having so many great food resources available to me here in NYC. One of my favorite stores is Kalustyan's <br />they have every spice, bean, &amp; grain in the world. If there's something you can't find, look on their website. I bet they'll have it and they can ship it to you! <br />Many of my recipes are Southern, because that's the food I grew up on. I hope the recipes I have posted here will be useful to folks out in the 'zaar universe! <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= alt= /></p>
