With this recipe you need one of those cookie press thingies--I've handed mine off to
blonded daughter and she makes these cookies now.
Assembly the following:
1 Cup butter--yummy butter!
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla or 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups flour
- Heat oven to 400°F.
- Combine all ingredients except flour in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed. Prepare dough as directed by variations below, if desired. (If dough is too soft, cover and refrigerate, 30-45 minutes.)
- Place dough into cookie press fitted with template. Form desired shapes, 1 inch apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
