These have been a "must" in our home during Christmas for 40 years. Quantity will depend on the pattern used on the cookie press/shooter.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 cups unsalted butter
- 1 cup white sugar
- 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Cream together the butter and sugar. Add egg yolks and vanilla. Add sifted flour one half at a time.
Put dough into a cookie press and press into desired shapes.
Bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 10 minutes. Do Not Brown.
