Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 3 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • green food coloring optional
  • 10 ounces white and/or dark chocolate candy melts
  • assorted holiday sprinkles

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a non stick baking mat.
  • Place the butter, cream cheese and sugar in the bowl of a mixer. Beat until smooth, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the egg yolk and vanilla, beat until combined. 
  • Add the flour and mix until just blended.
  • Divide the dough in half. Color half the dough green if desired.
  • Shape 1/4 of the dough into a log and place into the barrel of the cookie press. 
  • Spritz the cookies directly onto the baking sheet, about 1 inch apart.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set and light golden brown on the edges.
  • Cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
  • After all cookies have cooled, place the dark and white candy melts into two bowls. Microwave one bowl at a time in 30 second increments until melted, stir until smooth.
  • Dip the cookies halfway into the chocolate and decorate with sprinkles. If the dipping chocolate starts to harden, microwave for a few seconds to re-melt.
  • Let dry completely, then serve, or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
