1 stick butter, softened
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

Cream cheese with margarine. Add flour and pepper. Transfer to a cookie press and press out into flat straws. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Do not brown.

My mom always made these for holiday parties when I was growing up. I always thought working the cookie press was so much fun. We’ve also made them for numerous wedding and baby showers over the years.
