1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese
1/3 cup white sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon lemon extract

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.
