My sister was making these cookies, so I joined her in the holiday baking for some childhood nostalgia – I used to love using the spritz press!
Makes about 4 dozen
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
colored sugar if desired
Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with electric beaters on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, salt, egg, vanilla, and almond extract.
Place dough in cookie press. Form desired shapes on ungreased cookie sheet. Decorate with colored sugar.
Bake 5 to 8 minutes until set but not brown. Immediately removed from cookie sheet to wire rack.
