A cream cheese spritz recipe flavored with orange and cinnamon.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature

  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 large egg yolk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest

  • 2-1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour (sift first, then measure)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

  • colored sugar (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream together butter, cream cheese and sugar. Beat in egg yolk, vanilla and orange zest. Sift together flour, salt, and cinnamon. Gradually blend flour mixture into butter mixture. Fill cookie press. Form cookies on ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with colored sugar, if desired. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Remove at once to cooling racks.

Notes

  • Modified from the original recipe found in the vintage Mirro Cookie Press recipe booklet. The original recipe uses 1 cup of solid vegetable shortening (such as Crisco) instead of butter, but is otherwise the same.

Make these every year! They come perfectly out of the press and they are a nice variation from a spritz cookie.

My mom found this recipe to switch up our Christmas cookies years back and we loved them! I’m having a rough time as this will be my first Christmas without her, but I am so thankful to have this recipe and to keep this tradition (and all the wonderful memories of Christmases before) alive.

Grew up in New England and started to bake these cookies with my Mom every year for 50+ years. It wouldn't be Christmas without them. These days I tint them green and dunk them in white bark. Sometimes I make them into a sandwich. One of my favorites!
