A wonderful spritz cookie with cinnamon in it. These freeze very well.

2 1/4 C. flour
1/4 tea. salt
1/4 tea. ground cinnamon
1 C. butter
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 C. sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tea. vanilla extract or flavoring
1 tea. orange zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Sift together the flour, salt and cinnamon, set aside.

In a med. bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese. Add sugar and egg yolk, continue to cream until light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla extract or flavoring and orange zest.

Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Fill a cookie press or pastry bag with dough and form cookies onto an unprepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 12 to 15 min. in oven, until the cookies are golden brown on the peaks and the bottoms. Remove at once to cool on wire racks.
