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.

Good recipe. Had to add 1/4 cup of skim milk to the dough so it would come out of the cookie press though. Added some lemon glaze on top, threw some festive sprinkles on, and they were the hit of the party! 4 stars

I had to add more flour to make a play-dough consistency but these are amazing and everyone LOVES them! 5 stars

Delicious. this is wonderful basic spritz cookie. very much if not the same as the original recipe that came with my mirror cookie press 50 years ago. I now use the Wilton Rachet cookie press which works wonderfully well. I also used this with canned butter that was coming up on it expiration date. that canned butter has less moisture and made the crispest lightest most wonderful cookies. This will continue to be my go to recipe for spritz. 5 stars
