Spritz Cookies

This is a fun cookie to make with your family. Decorating cookies together is one of our traditions. We enjoy inviting over the nieces and nephews to help us. Of course everyone goes home with a plate of cookies for mom and dad.

Butter Spritz Cookies

2 1/2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup butter
1 1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar
2 egg yolks or 1 whole egg
1/2 tsp. pure almond extract
1 tsp. vanilla
Stir together flour with salt, mixing well.

Beat butter, gradually adding sugar, until creamy. Beat in eggs and flavorings.

Roll out your cookie dough and cut any shape with cookie cutters.

Bake at 400° for 6 to 8 minutes.
