Butter Rich Spritz Butter Cookies
Wonderful cookie-press cookies, rich in flavor. My mom has made these cookies for years for all of the holidays. The kids love to decorate them as much as they love to eat them.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Sift together the flour and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl cream together the butter and sugar.
Stir in the egg yolks almond extract and vanilla extract.
Gradually blend in the sifted ingredients.
Fill a cookie press with dough and shoot cookies about 1 1/2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
If you like decorate with sugar or sprinkles at this time.
