Spritz Cookies

Warm, buttery, not to "floury".

4 sticks of butter (salted)
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
4 egg yolks
1 tsp almond extract
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
4 2/3 cup flour

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Sift together the flour and salt; set aside.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the egg yolks, almond extract and vanilla extract. Gradually blend in the sifted ingredients. 
  3. Color dough.  I seperate into 3 even parts and color each differently.
  4. Fill a cookie press with dough and shoot cookies onto a cookie sheet. Decorate with sprinkles.
  5. Bake for 6 to 7 minutes in the preheated oven until just beginning to brown around the edges.  Let rest out of the oven for 2 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
Makes a crapload of cookies.  (You could 1/2 the recipe if you want.)
