Serves:

about 4 1/2 dozen cookies

Ingredients

1 c
butter, softened
1 c
sugar
4 oz
cream cheese, softened
1 medium
egg yolk
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
2 1/2 c
flour

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the cream cheese.
2
Beat in the egg yolk and vanilla extract until well-incorporated.
3
Beat in the flour. If you want to color the dough, add a few drops of food coloring to it and knead until the color is uniform.
4
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill at least 4 hours.
5
before ready to bake, let the dough sit at room temperature just until soft enough to mold (or knead it with your hands). Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
6
On an ungreased surface, press out the dough into shapes. Transfer to baking sheets lined with parchment paper, and then add decorations.
7
Bake 10-12 minutes or until the edges are stiff and the cookies are lightly browned on the bottom.
