Baking season has officially begun....

I may be a Scrooge this year when it comes to everything else Christmas.....but I *love* to bake & look forward to making tons of cookies each year! I always start with my very favorite, the ones my grandma & I used to make together each year......SPRITZ cookies!!!!! I made 3 batches today....that should last a few days, lol!!

I posted the recipe here on my blog last year, & many people wrote telling me how yummy they were. it is again!!!


1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 1/4 cups sifted all purpose flour, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp baking powder, ALL sifted together
1 tsp almond extract

Cream butter, add sugar & egg, then dry ingredients. Add food coloring if you wish. Use cookie press to make different shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Makes 6 dozen.

If I make nothing else, I am happy!! But I do plan on making lots more.....I always make fudge (trying a new recipe this year...I will post it if it turns out, lol), peanut blossoms, sugar cookies, Rolo wreaths, & this year I'm going to try something new.....they involved cherries....I'm not a huge fan of cherries but I think my kids will love them. What am I saying.....they are cookies....of COURSE they will love them!!!
