cookies : spritz
This recipes is a classic by now. My mom got a spritz gun in the early 80's and now I have it. I guess at this point it is considered vintage. This is one of my favorite cookies.
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat over to 375 degrees.
With electric mixer beat the butter while gradually adding sugar. Once added, continue to beat until light and fluffy, about five minutes.
Add egg and vanilla; beat well.
In another bowl blend flour, baking powder and salt togehter. Add to the mixer in three additions, mixing well after each one.. The dough will be stiff.
Fill and assemble your spritz gun to make the cookies.
Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until they start to turn golden around the edges.
Makes 6-7 dozen
