Cream Cheese Cookies

I have a lot of cream cheese left and wonder what to do with it. I cam up with the cookie recipe.

1 cup butter, softened
8 ounce cream cheese, softened 
1 cup white sugar
1 egg yolk 
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour 


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter, cream cheese, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in flour until well blended. 
  3. Drop dough by spoonfuls or use a cookie press to place onto prepared cookie sheets. If using floral cookie press design, make an indentation in the center with a thimble, fill with preserves, or press candy into center.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes in preheated oven. Cookies should be pale. Be careful not to over bake them.
We brought them to the camp site with us and they are a big hit!
