    1. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, butter, cream cheese, salt, almond and vanilla extracts, and egg yolk. Beat until smooth. Stir in flour until well blended. Chill the dough for 8 hours, or overnight.
    2. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5.
    3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough 1/3 at a time to .25cm thickness, refrigerating remaining dough until ready to use. Cut into desired shapes with lightly floured biscuit cutters. Place 2 to 3cm apart on ungreased baking trays. Leave biscuits plain for icing, or brush with slightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with hundred and thousands or coloured sugar.
    4. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light and golden brown. Cool biscuits completely before icing.
