Cream cheese cookies

6:28 pm Cookie

To my mind, cream cheese is an indispensable helper of every woman when it comes down to cooking. Used in bagels, cakes and cookies cream cheese makes them very nice and savory owing to its sweet and mild taste.

2 cups flour
1 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 ounces package cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
2/3 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp orange zest

1. Heat oven to 180 C (350 F). Combine flour, cinnamon, salt, and put aside.
2. Mix butter and cream cheese in a bowl, add sugar, egg yolk, vanilla extract and orange zest.
3. Fill a cookie press or pastry bag with dough. Make cookies on an ungreased backing sheet. Bake 15 minutes until cookies are goldish-brown.
4. Remove from the sheet and allow cookies cool on wire rack.
