Easy Spritz Cookies for Christmas

I LOVE Spritz cookies for Christmas!!!  (Especially when my mom makes them!)  LOL!  :)

I LOVE using my Pampered Chef cookie press (affiliate link) too.

I have had it for many years now, and I see they have a different version now.  I still like mine.  My boys can even use it, once they get the hang of it.

Anyway, a favorite Christmas cookie from my childhood are Spritz cookies.  As far as I know, they are Swedish cookies because I am mostly Swedish, with a little Norwegian thrown in more good measure!  :)

Here is the recipe that I have been using.  There are several varieties I'm sure, but this is from a little Swedish grandma that went to my childhood church.

Spritz Cookies by Annie Abramson
*3/4 cup sugar
*1 cup butter
*1 egg
*2 1/2 cups flour
*1/2 tsp. baking powder
*1 tsp. almond extract
Cream together the sugar and butter.  Mix in the remaining ingredients.  Using your cookie press, press onto a cookie sheet.  Bake at 375* for 8 - 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of your cookie.  10 minutes works well when using the Pampered Chef cookie press(affiliate link).
You can also make a small ball of dough and roll it in cinnamon sugar.  Then press with a cookie stamp.
