How to Make Not Just For Christmas Spritz Cookies
- Stir together flour and baking powder. In a large mixer bowl beat butter or margarine till softened. Add sugar and beat till fluffy. Add egg, vanilla, and almond extract and beat well. Gradually add flour mixture and beat till well mixed. To ensure easy passage through the cookie press, do not chill dough.
- If desired, tint dough with food coloring. Force dough through a cookie press onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Decorate with colored sugars or dandies, if desired. Bake in a 400F oven for 7-8 minutes, or till lightly browned. Remove and cool.
