Spritz Cookies

Spritz Cookies

Let butter soften slightly at room temperature. Cream the butter until white and fluffy. Add the sugar a little at a time, beating until the granules of sugar are no longer felt, and the mixture is light and fluffy. Add flavoring and egg. Blend thoroughly. Add the flour and salt, gently with a metal spoon, a little at a time, until the dough is soft and workable. Pack dough into a cookie press or a pastry bag, using any pattern you prefer. Lightly butter baking sheets. Press out dough. Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 10 minutes, or until cookie edges are a light golden brown. Serving Ideas: Instead of adding vanilla extract try almond extract OR the rind of 1/2 lemon. Yields: 24

Traditionally served in Germany at Christmas time.
