The holiday season is starting early at my house this year. I have been craving these buttery cookies for days. This recipe is a perfect cookie to make with kids. Mixing the 5-ingredient dough is a snap. Plus your kids will love using the cookie press to make the cookies.
- 1 cup butter or margarine
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 tsp flavoring (almond or vanilla)
- 2 1/2 cups flour
Heat oven to 400. Mix butter, sugar, egg yolks, and flavoring. Add flour to mixture. Select the cookie press shape you want to use. (Each time you fill the press you can change the cookie press shape.) Using about 1/4 of the dough at a time, force the dough through the cookie press (see the photo below) onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake 7-10 minutes--be careful not to overbake. Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
