like butter the best)

2 1/2 cup sifted flour

1 tsp salt

Opt***food coloring and

Cream the softened butter and
cream cheese together with the sugar. Add the egg yolk and vanilla and mix
well. Stir in the sifted flour and salt. Mix well. You want the dough to just
be soft and not gooey to the touch. Add desired color to dough if you like,
mixing the coloring in completely. Spoon dough into the cookie press and press
out cookies onto plate. Add desired sprinkles for decoration before baking in a
350 degree oven for 8 minutes.
