Classic Spritz

(originally made 12/2011)

Made these with Jake today.   This is the first time I've used my PC press, so wanted to start with their recipe.

Classic Spritz Cookies

  3             sticks  butter or margarine -- softened (used butter)
  1                cup  sugar
  1                     egg
  1           teaspoon  vanilla
  3 1/2           cups  all-purpose flour (14 ounces)
                        Colored sugar or sprinkles (optional)

Preheat oven to 375°F. In Classic Batter Bowl, beat butter on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add sugar, egg and vanilla; beat well. Add flour, 1 cup at a time; mix well. Dough will be soft; do not refrigerate.
Fill Cookie Press, fitted with disk of your choice, with dough using Medium Scoop. Press dough onto flat Baking Stone 1 inch apart. Decorate cookies with colored sugar or sprinkles, if desired.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until firm but not brown. Cool 2 minutes on flat Baking Stone; remove to Stackable Cooling Rack. Repeat with remaining dough.
