Nice change from hard, bland, traditional spritz cookies. These cookies turn out soft, and the cream cheese gives a nice, subtle tang to the flavor. However, I made a few changes by using 1/2c. of butter-flavored shortening and 1 stick of margarine instead of the 1 c. of butter-flavored shortening listed in the recipe. I also reduced the salt to 1/4 tsp. and added 15 drops of green food coloring. With the tree-shaped die inserted in the cookie press, the recipe yielded 72 cookies. I baked them on a parchment-lined, pre-heated baking stone for 10 minutes until well set but not brown on the edges. Then I took the cookies out of the oven, let them sit on the stone for two more minutes, removed them from the stone, and cooled them on a wire rack - they turned out perfectly!
