Butter Spritz Cookies

These mouthwatering cookies are great year round, but can make the holidays especially festive with the colorful sprinkles.

 

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • Sprinkles for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixer with a paddle attachment, add the sugar and the butter. Mix until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla and almond extracts and mix to incorporate. Sift together the baking powder and the flour. Add the flour mixture. Mix until combined. Using a cookie press, press cookies onto ungreased cookie sheets. Top with the sprinkles of your choice. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, or until firm, but not yet browning.

 

Makes about 4 dozen.
