Almond Spritz Cookies

Almond Spritz Cookies

At this time of year I start baking Christmas cookies and I often make Almond Spritz Cookies. These cookies are bite sized and flavourful. They are perfect when you want a small sweet treat. Enjoy with hot cocoa or eggnog.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup softened butter + 1 tbsp

¾ cup sugar

1 egg

½ tsp vanilla

1 tsp almond extract

¼ tsp salt

2 ¼ cups flour

DIRECTIONS

Cream together butter, sugar, egg, vanilla and almond extract.

In another bowl combine salt and flour.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until well incorporated.

Divide dough into separate bowls. Add different coloured gel food colouring to the different bowls to reach the desired colour level.

Prepare cookie press according to manufacturer’s instructions. Place dough in machine and press designs onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 10 minutes.
