Butter Snow Flakes
One reviewer rolled these into balls, rolled them in coconut and put some jelly in the middle for a thumbprint!
- 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
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp orange zest
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.
