- ⅓ cup white sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon lemon extract
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
step 2: In a medium bowl, cream together shortening, cream cheese, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk, and lemon extract. Combine flour and salt; gradually mix into the creamed mixture in three additions, mixing well after each. Load dough into a cookie press, and press cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
