Spritz Cookies (for cookie press)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  1. Heat oven to 400 F. Cream butter and sugar. Blend in remaining ingredients. Divide dough and color with 2 colors of food coloring (I usually do red and green). Fill cookie press. Form desired shapes on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 6-9 minutes or until set but not brown.
I have a cookie party every year, where I bake hundreds of cookies (and make a few non-cookie treats). This party is epic. Here's my recipe for the Spritz Cookies, which are a favorite of many guests. I am pretty sure my mom gave me this recipe, and her cookie baking eclipses mine!
