I love cookies! Miss P's Papa was baking cookies today due to our 16" of snow.
Yummy ginger and molasses, peanut butter cookies, chocolate crinkles, and Spritz.
Sorry, my mouth is watering from thinking of all the choices.
Sounds good, right?

So, while thinking of cookies (hense, the picture) I decided to browse for ideas, as I'm off on winter break.
Searching for fun recipes and inspiration on Monday.
I will bake and eat, eat and bake...and pretty much be happy.

I fell upon these beauties.
Must. Bake. These.

Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies


• 1 cup butter, softened

• 1 cup granulated sugar

• 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

• 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

• 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

• 1 egg yolk

Makes: Recipe makes 4 dozen cookies.


•Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream butter and cream cheese together. Add sugar and mix well until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, vanilla and lemon peel. Mix well.

•Gradually add flour and salt to cream mixture. Shape dough in small logs and place in Wilton Cookie Pro™ or other cookie press.

•Press cookies onto cool ungreased cookie sheet.

•Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

•To make green trees add a small amount of Leaf Green paste color to dough before shaping into logs.

You must agree with me, as I know this recipe not only sounds good, but the picture looks good too.

So, stay tunned as I am whipping up some yummy things come Monday.

But before I leave, what types of cookies, cakes, or goodies do you enjoy during the holidays?
