Spritz Cookies

1 1/2 C. butter, softened
4 C. flour
1 C. sugar
1 tea. baking powder
1 tea. vanilla extract or flavoring
1/2 tea. almond flavoring
1 egg
2 Tbsp. milk
Food coloring (optional)
Colored sugar (optional)
Chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy; add flavorings, egg and milk and stir until well mixed. If you wish to color the dough, add color now and mix well.

Sift or mix flour and baking powder together, then add to dough (this is more easily done in two or three parts). Mix with hands if necessary as dough will be very stiff. Push dough into a spritzer gun and press shapes onto unprepared cookie sheet. Bake for 6 min. and no longer.

NOTE: Spritz cookies can be made into shapes by using a cookie press.
