Almond Cream Spritz Cookies  Recipe

Almond Cream Spritz Cookies         

1 cup butter, softened
1 3-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
Finely chopped almonds

Beat butter and cream cheese in a large mixing bowl till well combined. Add sugar, almond extract, and vanilla; beat till combined. Beat in flour. Cover and chill dough for 30 minutes or till easily worked but not too stiff.

Pack dough into a cookie press. Force dough through press onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake in a 375 F. oven for 8 to 10 minutes or till edges of cookies are firm but not brown. Remove cookies and cool on wire racks. Makes about 60.

Make-ahead tip: Cool cookies completely. In an airtight or freezer container, arrange cookies in a single layer; cover with a sheet of waxed paper. Repeat layers, leaving enough air space to close container easily. Freeze up to 1 month.
