Spritz cookies that are light and won't last long. The dough handles better when slightly chilled.
INGREDIENTS (for 7 servings):
- 2 cups butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 cup cornstarch
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla and almond extracts. Combine the flour and cornstarch; stir into the creamed mixture until well blended. Fill cookie press and press out dough onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are golden. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.
