Chewy Spitz Cookies

I love spitz cookies! They remind me of the holidays and family. I love to make them with cream cheese so they are soft and chewy texture. I also like to add a little almond extract to help mute the sweetness. Give them a try and let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature

3 ounces cream cheese

1 cup sugar

1 egg yolk

2 teaspoon almond extract

2 1/2 cups flour

food coloring (if desired)

Sprinkles (if desired)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter, cream cheese, and sugar until well blended.  Beat in egg yolk and almond extract.  

Gradually blend in flour until completely incorporated.  Add a few drops of food coloring and mix to desired shade. Add to cookie press per instructions

PRO TIP: Form cookies on an ungreased baking sheet or else the cookies will not stick to the baking sheet

Bake for 8-10 minutes until just set on the outside. Let it cool and remove from pan.
