About the Recipe
These cream cheese cookies have been passed through three generations of Zietz women. They provide joy and warmth during rainy days.
1/2 c. butter
1 (3 oz.) package cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. orange extract ( I ASSUME VANILLA EXTRACT COULD BE SUBSTITUTED???)
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F . Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
Combine the butter, cream cheese, egg yolk, sugar, and vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl combine the flour and salt.
Roll the cookie dough into flat circular shapes.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until the bottom of the cookies are golden brown.
