Butter Snow Flakes 1 Picture


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 (3oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F. Sift together the flour, salt, and cinnamon; set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together butter and cream cheese. Add sugar and egg yolk; beat until light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla and orange zest. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Fill a cookie press or pastry bag with dough, and form cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 12-15 mins in the preheated oven, or until the cookies are golden brown on the peaks and on the bottoms. Remove from cookie sheets at once to cool on wire racks.
