Spritz Butter Cookies

Ok since it is Christmas time I thought I would share my favorite cookie recipe! I have been baking these cookies for years!! I love using the cookie press to create perfectly shaped spritz cookies. The cookie press you can really buy anywhere I use to have a manual one but a few years ago I upgraded to an electric one from cuisine art. You can get fancy and Throw some food coloring and sprinkles on them too. The recipe I use is simple:
1 egg
4 sticks of softened room temp butter (it’s all about the butter)
1 1/2 cups of Confectioner sugar
2 Tablespoons of pure vanilla extract
1/2 Teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Then whisk the flour and salt.
Then beat the butter and sugar with a mixer until creamy then add the egg and vanilla extract. Slowly add the flour. If you want to use food coloring you can add a few drops of desired color now.
Fill cookie press up with dough and choose your desired disc shape. Place cookie press down on cookie sheet and press down on button for typically 3-4 seconds and lift up. Repeat until cookie sheet is full.
Add sprinkles.(optional)
Bake for 7-8 min or until edges are lightly golden brown (keep an eye on it) on a ungreased cookie sheet.
