When discussing plans for this year's annual sugarfest, DH selected this weekend. We went over the recipes of what was needed for the baskets and DH said that we needed to have spice cookies and spritz cookies too. I won't even discuss how much sugar we went through this weekend. Please note that these cookies were made with the understanding that I am not serving two week old cookies for Christmas.
I got the recipe from my mom who I think got if from a Wisconsin Electric Company recipe book in about 1970.
Cream Cheese Spritz
Sift flour, salt and cinnamon onto baking parchment. Cream cream cheese and butter. Beat in 1 cup sugar. Blend well. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in sifted ingredients a little at a time. Chill dough until firm. Put in press and mold on cold, ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with colored sugars.
Bake at 335F for 12-13 minutes or until edges are brown.
