Spritz Cookies Printer-Friendly Recipe
From: Betty Crocker
Makes: Around 72 cookies
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 1/4 all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract (I prefer almond)
Sprinkles, for topping
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. With a hand-mixer or stand-mixer, beat together the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Add the flour, salt, egg, and almond extract. Mix until just combined.
Use a spritz cookie press to press out the cookies on ungreased cookie sheets. Top with sprinkles. Bake in preheated oven for 5-8 minutes until the cookies are set, but not brown. Remove from oven, let the cookies sit on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then remove to cool completely on wire cooling racks. Enjoy!
