Soft and buttery with a slight tang from the cream cheese, this version of a classic Christmas cookie is delicious!
In a medium mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the cream cheese. Beat in the egg yolk and vanilla until well-incorporated. This is also where you’d add in the vanilla bean if you’re using it.
Beat in the flour. If you want to color the dough, add a few drops of food coloring to it and knead until the color is uniform. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill at least 4 hours.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). On an ungreased surface (this is important, because otherwise the cookies won’t come off the press), press out the dough into shapes. Transfer to baking sheets lined with parchment paper, and then add decorations.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until the edges are stiff and the cookies are lightly browned on the bottom. Makes about 4 1/2 dozen cookies.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!

In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
