Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies

Quick! Before the New Year starts and you have to buckle down on that pesky new diet resolution, treat yourself to a batch of cream cheese spritz cookies.  I used a recipe from the original book that came with my 1950s press.

1 C shortening
8 oz cream cheese
1 C sugar
1 teas vanilla
3 1/2 C flour

Combine all ingredients in order listed.  Add food coloring to tint before adding flour.  Fill cookie press and drop on ungreased cookie sheet.  Decorate with sprinkles, colored sugar or red hots as desired.  Bake 375degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Betcha can't eat just one!  (or six, for that matter)
