    1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
    In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat cream cheese, butter, sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture to butter mixture (1/2 at a time, with mixer turned off) on low, just until blended.

    Colored Sugars
    Fill the cookie press with dough and extrude cookies directly onto an ungreased cookie sheet about an inch apart.  Add sprinkles and colored sugars at this point, if desired.  Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until slightly golden. Cool on rack to allow them to get crispy.  When cooled completely, store in tin or air-tight container.
