Course: Dessert
Keyword: cookies, dessert


  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • cups flour


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • In a large bowl, combine butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Then add flour and mix well.
  • Using a cookie press, fill cookie sheets with dough. Or roll dough into a 1-inch ball and press with your thumb. Dust with colored sugar or sprinkles.
  • Bake at 350° for 15 minutes.


This dough does not spread as it cooks. You can place them fairly close to each other on the cookie sheet.
