Cookie Recipe #138 - Spritz
These little bites are made using a cookie press. Several disc shapes come with the press, so a variety of cookies can be made.
Ingredients: 1 cup butter, softened, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon almond extract or vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 egg.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix butter and sugar in large mixing bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well. Place dough in cookie press and form desired shapes on ungreased cookie sheet.*
Bake 6-9 minutes or until set but not brown. Allow to cool on baking sheet for a minute before transferring to cooling racks.
*May sprinkle colored sugar or sprinkles on top of each cookie, if desired. Or, after cooling, a simple glaze of 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1-2 teaspoons milk (or more) can be made and spread on cookies.
Makes 5 dozen cookies.
