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.

My first attempt with a cookie press.
These made wonderful, delicious little holiday cookies. The only problem is I want them all year! Perfection!

This recipe makes perfectly formed and buttery-sweet cookies. I’ve tried several recipes and this is definitely my favorite! 5 stars

Would make these again...just the right consistency for my cookie press! One thing I did do was beat it until it whipped, then put it in the fridge for a few moments. It made the cookies very light and tasty when baked. 5 stars

Would make this again.
I have made these types of cookies for years and this recipe seems to be like the one my mother made with me. Looks like I will try it this year. 5 stars
