Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
- 1 cup room temperature butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp almond extract
Directions: Combine butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add egg, almond extract, salt and flour. Mix until combined. Put dough in cookie press and place on non-stick baking sheet directly. First batch will take 6 minutes, subsequent batches will take 5 minutes.
*I wipe down sheet pan with a paper towel between batches so that the cookies will stick to the sheet pan better, coming out of the press.
**I separate the dough into three bowls and mix in red food coloring to one bowl and green food coloring to one of the others, leaving one of the bowls the original white color. I add small increments of each of the colors to the cookie press, filling the press completely. Outcome is shown in picture above.
