Cream cheese spritz cookie recipe

Pin it.

Pulled from the archives, I originally shared this cookie recipe in 2012. Hope you enjoy!

Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies

These Cream Cheese Spritz cookies are so delicious and as far as Christmas treats go – they are really frugal!

Cream cheese is on sale for $0.99 or less this time of year and you only need 1/3 of a block for one batch, the dough makes a lot of cookies and they don’t require a lot of extras – just some sprinkles and they look beautiful, thanks to the shapes you can make with the cookie press.

kuhn-rikon-clear-cookie-press

This recipe does use a Cookie Press. I have a Pampered Chef cookie press but you can also buy a variety of cookie presses Amazon here. This one seems to have the BEST reviews – Kuhn Rikon Clear Cookie Press with Decorating Tips and Storage Box on sale for around $20 right now. I like that it also has six decorating tips!

INGREDIENTS

1 cup of butter (softened at room temperature)

3 oz of cream cheese (also softened)

1 cup sugar

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

2 1/2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

HOW TO PREPARE

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

2.) Using mixer blend together butter and cream cheese until creamy

3.) Add sugar and mix well until light and fluffy

4.) Mix in eggs yolks, vanilla and almond extract

5.) Slowly add your flour and salt, mix well

6.) If you want to add food coloring, you can take a small part of the dough or all the dough and add food coloring for desired color.

7.) Shape dough into a small log and add it to your cookie press.

8.) Press cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet (sometimes if you freeze your cookie sheets first the cookies will stick better)

9.) I recommend adding sprinkles before you bake – otherwise you’ll need to frost them to get the sprinkles to stick.

10.) Bake for 10-12 minutes, until they start turning a light brown around the edges.

11.) Let cool and eat!

Here are some photos from when we made them!
