|CREAM CHEESE SPRITZ COOKIES|
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. pure almond extract
1/2 tsp. butter flavoring (optional)
1 tbsp. butterscotch schnapps
2-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream together butter and cream cheese; add sugar.
Cream mixture until light and fluffy.
Add egg yolk, beat well; stir in flavorings.
On low speed, gradually add flour and salt.
Cookie dough will be soft and somewhat sticky; adjust consistency if dough seems too sticky, adding a tablespoon of flour at a time; if dough seems too stiff for a cookie press, add a tablespoon of milk at a time.
Shape dough into 3-inch balls and drop into the barrel of a cookie press. Push dough in to eliminate spaces. Press cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Sprinkle with colored sugars or color dough with a few drops of red or green food coloring to make festively colored cookies.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Store in airtight container. Freeze if keeping for more than 2 weeks.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
