CREAM CHEESE SUGAR COOKIES

CREAM CHEESE SUGAR COOKIES

1 c. sugar
1 c. butter, softened
1 pkg. (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. almond extract
1/2 t. vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
2 c. flour
Colored sugar or sprinkles, if desired

In large bowl, beat all ingredients except flour and colored sugar, with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in flour until well combined.

Shape dough into 3 disks. Wrap dough in plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 hour for easier handling.

Preheat oven to 375* F. Roll one disk at a time on floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness (keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to use). Cut as desired and place 1-inch apart on ungreased cheets. Decorate with colored sugar or sprinkles. Bake 6 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Immediately remove from cookie sheets.
