Use a cookie press to create lovely shapes in this easy, buttery cookie.

2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup butter
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Heat oven to 400F. In large mixer bowl combine sugar, butter, egg, salt, and vanilla. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture is light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add flour. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed, 2 to 3 minutes. Place dough in cookie press. Form desired shapes 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Note: You can also color the dough with food coloring, and decorate with dragées and colored sugar.

Perfect results both times I've made these. Perhaps those who had poor results used margarine instead of butter? 5 stars

Would not make this again.
Best I can say: awful. I tried this instead of my normal pressed cookie recipe. The dough was way too soft even after 24 hours in the fridge. Only the first few cookies came out of press, then they just turned into blobs. 1 star

I should have paid attention to the first comment! (A cookie baker from Wisconsin said he would never make this again.) 1 star

Good recipe . This is the first time I made cookies with the press. This recipe tasted Todd and was easy to do. We added green food coloring to make trees for Christmas. 5 stars
