I present to you.. DRUMROLL PLEASE.... Spritz Holiday Cookies!
Updated: Feb 21, 2020
I am SO excited to share with you this very SPECIAL cookie recipe! Why? Because it’s my cute little mommy’s recipe (she’s 93 years young). I also used her Cookie Press! This thing has been around since the 1950’s. I couldn’t find the actual brand name on it but it looked very similar to some that I found on Etsy and Pinterest. I believe the brand is MIRRO. It has so many cute cutouts and it still works like a charm! So...from my mommy’s “hand me down” kitchen recipe to my kitchen and from my kitchen to YOURS!

1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1 large egg at room temp
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a hand mixer cream the butter and sugar on medium speed for 1 minute until combined.
Add in the egg, almond extract, vanilla and mix for an additional minute, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
Turn the mixer to low and add in the salt and flour and mix until combined.
Place about 1 cup of dough into the cookie press. Press cookies onto the baking sheet using the press. Arrange the cookies about 1 inch apart and bake for 5-6 minutes or until lightly golden at edges.
