Decorate Spritzgebäck Christmas cookies with colored sugars, dip in melted chocolate or tint the dough before pressing for tempting and pretty additions to your holiday cookie tray.
Spritzgebäck Christmas Biscuits
1 cup butter, softened
1-1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Colored sugar and sprinkles, as desired to decorate
Preheat oven to 375°
In a large bowl, cream butter, confectioners’ sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. Gradually beat flour into creamed mixture.
Bake 6-8 minutes or until set but not brown. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Yield: about 7-1/2 dozen.
RECIPE NOTE: I have a Pampered Chef Cookie Press and the cookies are larger than other presses make so I got closer to 5 dozen. I baked my cookies 12-14 minutes just until beginning to lightly brown.
