Emma's spritz cookies...day 7

These will be just about the easiest cookies you will ever make! Also, they are rich & delicate at the same time while being just plain delicious. I love that when they come out of the oven they are done, no further primping needed, they are ready to go to the party. Along with an awesome husband, I got this recipe from my mother-in-law.....thanks Emma, for the recipe & the hubs!

Emma's Spritz Cookies

1 cup butter at room temperature
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp almond extract
3 egg yolks
2 1/3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt

In a mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the butter & sugar together until light & fluffy. Add the egg yolks, one at a time & mix well. Add the vanilla. Gradually add the flour & salt until incorporated.

Put dough through a cookie press onto baking sheets. Bake at 400* for 6 to 9 minutes, until lightly golden, do not over bake. Decorate with sprinkles if desired, I just love them the way they are!
