Cream cheese spritz cookies

I'm not a huge fan of pressed cookies in general, but these are good.  Not overly sweet, very nice for a tea or other elegant occasion.
  • 1 cup softened butter or margarine
  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • dash of salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • decorating sugar or sprinkles
Cream butter and cream cheese; add sugar and beat until fluffy. Stir in vanilla, then add salt and flour and mix until soft dough forms.  Chill.  Pack into cookie press and make cookies in desired shaped.  Sprinkle with colored sugar.  Bake at 400 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes; watch carefully to prevent over-browning.
