Classic Spritz Cookies

You will need a Cookie Press to get these cookies into their classic shapes.


1 ½ Cups Softened Butter

1 Cup Sugar

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1 Egg

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

¼ Teaspoon Almond Extract

3 ½ Cups Unbleached Flour

Colored Sugar (Optional)

Powdered Sugar Icing (Optional)

In a large mixing bowl beat the butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add the sugar and baking powder. Beat until combined. Beat in the egg, vanilla and almond extract. Beat in the flour. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Force the unchilled dough through a cookie press onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. If you want you can sprinkle the shaped dough with colored sugar. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the edges are firm, but NOT brown. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to let cool. You can drizzle with the Powdered Sugar Icing or decorate any way that you want or leave plain. Makes 84 cookies.
