    **Tinkerbell**'s Note:

    Another favorite recipe from the booklet supplied with the Mirro brand Cookie & Pastry Press. There is no refrigeration required. I searched Zaar for the spritz cookie recipes I use from this book, to share with a fellow chef, but they weren't posted yet. *For tips on obtaining the best results possible with your cookie press, check out my photo demo in the Kitchen Gadgets & Appliances forum; click the link on my profile page or copy and paste this address: http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=330463

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    dozen c ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 1/4 cups sifted flour
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 cup butter (refrigerator temp or only slightly softened, margarine or shortening can be subbed)
    • 1 egg
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sift flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together in a bowl.
    2. 2
      With a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles pie crust or biscuit mix (very fine lumps).
    3. 3
      Crack an egg into a glass, liquid measuring cup. A large egg will measure 1/4 cup. If it doesn't, add water to reach the 1/4 cup line.
    4. 4
      Add the egg, water (if needed) and the vanilla to the flour mixture and beat the mixture well.
    5. 5
      Fill cookie press and form cookies on ungreased cookie sheets (aluminum preferred for best heat distribution).
    6. 6
      Bake at 375°F for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are just set or very slightly browned. Check cookies at the 10 minute mark and bake 1-2 minutes longer, if needed.
    7. 7
      Remove immediately to cooling racks.

      These cookies were a delight to have with a nice cup of tea, but Oh my!!! what a mess I got in making them, even the dog was laughing at me. But hay ho, I got there in the end. I bought a cookie press about a year ago and not used it, but I will not give in. I WILL make prettier ones. Tink you make them so pretty. but they are a very nice cookie and I WILL!!! make them again, I think by Christmas I should of mastered it. LOL. Made for ZWT#6 2010.
