The recipe for these spritz cookies is so easy....
1 C shortening
3/4 C sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 C all-purpose flour
green food coloring(for Christmas trees)
Cream shortening and sugar. Add egg, dry ingredients, flavoring and then a few drops of food coloring.
Mix well. Now using your cookie press form cookies. Add sprinkles if you would like. Bake 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees(preheated oven).
These taste great with a cup of coffee!
I so hope to have a new mini quilt to start the New Year off on Little Quilt Monday!
