Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies

Hi it's Dolphin Girl here,
One day we had to make some cookies for this dinner at a friends house and we wanted to use the new cookie press that I got for my birthday a week ago, and so we looked at the website that was on the box. And it came up with some recipes that we could use, And we all liked the "Cream Cheese Spritz cookie" one and when we tried it, we liked it a lot, so Here it is.
Cream Cheese Spritz cookies.
Makes 4 dozen cookies.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
(mind you when we made them we did a double batch so don't be confused when you see the pictures)
1 cup softened butter
1 (3 ounce) pkg softened cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp Madagascar Pure Vanilla Extract (you can use plain vanilla extract too)
1 tsp grated lemon peel ( and if you don't have any you can just use some lemon juice too)
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt

Cream butter and cream cheese together.

Add sugar and mix well until light and fluffy.

Add egg yolk, vanilla and lemon peel. Mix well.

Gradually add flour and salt to cream mixture.

Shape dough into small logs and place in cookie press
(or in stead just roll out the cookie dough, cut, and put onto cool ungreased cookie sheet)

Press cookies onto cool ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Store in an airtight container at cool room temperature for several weeks or freeze for 2 months.
