Annie's Cream Cheese Cookies

3 oz. cream cheese
1 c. shortening
1 c. granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 t. salt
2 1/2 c. sifted flour

Heat oven to 350.

1. Mix shortening and cream cheese. Add salt and vanilla to the mixture.
2. Add sugar and egg yolk gradually, and beat together until light and fluffy.
3. Sift flour and fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
4. Roll dough into 1" balls and place on cookie sheet. Use a fork to flatten balls in perpendicular lines (like you'd do to peanut butter cookies)
5. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Depending on your altitude, cookies may or may not be flat.
