Grandma Esther’s Spritz Cookies

I got this from my latest blog find, Thrify Mommy. Great place for ideas on how to save money, get dents out of cars, and yes...even take the sting out of jellyfish stings WITHOUT peeing on yourself (or anyone else).

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract

1. Heat oven to 375 F degrees.
2. Combine butter and sugar, then add remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
3. Load into cookie press. Place dough 1/2 inch apart on cookie sheet.
4. Bake 12 minutes or until edges are brown.
5. Decorate as desired.
