Spritz Cookies
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: approx. 2 dozen
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temp
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2¼ cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • colored sanding sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F and set aside 2 ungreased baking sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter until creamy. Add the sugar and mix well. Add the egg and almond extract and mix until smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well.
