Here is a recipe anyone can easily make as long as you have a cookie press. These are sooooo good and very buttery-hence the name.
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. pure almond extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
Heat oven to 375'. In the bowl of a mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add egg, milk, and vanilla and almond extracts to butter-and-sugar mixture; beat well. In a large bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Gradually add the creamed mixture. Mix until you have a smooth dough. Put dough in cookie press. Press trigger and form cookies on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake until golden, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer cookies to wire rack to cool.
This is such a fun cookie recipe for the kids. Mine just love to press the trigger. They are delicious too and very easy to make. Enjoy & Merry Christmas!!
