Spritz Cookies

Servings: 9 dozen


3 sticks (1 1/2 cups) butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, plus 1 yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
3 1/2 to 4 cups flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
Colored sugar, decorative sprinkles and cinnamon candies for decoration

Cooking Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly cream together butter and sugar, beating for 2 minutes. Add egg, egg yolk, vanilla and almond extracts; beat well.

Sift together 3 1/2 cups flour and baking powder; add gradually to creamed mixture, mixing to form a soft, but not sticky, dough. (If dough is sticky, add additional flour in small amounts until proper consistency is reached.)

Fill cookie press; press cookies onto ungreased cookie sheets. Decorate with colored sugar or cinnamon candies or decorative sprinkles. Bake in a 400°F oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Store in airtight containers. May be frozen.
