A wonderful Spritz cookie with cinnamon in it. These freeze very well.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour, salt, and cinnamon; set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes 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.

I broke my cookie press and had to improvise and came out with the best cookies ever! I rolled the dough into balls, rolled that in coconut, and put strawberry jam in a thumbprint I made in the middle--people tell me they're the best cookies ever!!

Absolutely perfect little butter cookie that's highly addictive! They just seem to pop right in your mouth. They're not overly sweet and I love the addition of the orange zest. I did increase the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp. but other than that I didn't change a thing. This was a great recipe for a cookie press! Just sprinkle with some colored sugar and you're ready to make a holiday cookie tray look like it came straight from your favorite bakery.

Wow! These knocked my socks off! They are delicious. I also doubled the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp. and added a little nutmeg. Then I added a 1/2 tsp of almond extract to the mix. I colored half the dough green and pressed into Christmas trees and the other half I left white and used a snowflake design. Mine were done in about 5 mins though so the first batch burned (had it set for 12 mins). It also made more than I thought -- between 7-8 dozen. Thanks for sharing!
