Cream Cheese Cookies

Submitted by: Robin


These cookies are delicate when made with a press, or hardy when dropped as spoonfuls. I fill centers with preserves or a chocolate chip for added variety.

Makes: 6 dozen
Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 1 hour



1 cup butter, softened
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour


1 Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 C). Lightly grease cookie sheets.

2. In a large bowl cream together butter, cream cheese, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in flour until well blended. Drop dough by spoonfuls or use a cookie press to place onto prepared cookie sheets. If using floral cookie press design, make an indentation with a thimble, fill with preserves, or press candy into center.

3. Bake for 15 minutes in preheated oven. Cookies should be pale.
