Patchwork Spritz Cookies


6 dozen cookies


1 1/2 cups butter or margarine, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
paste food colors


Preheat oven to 400°F. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, and extracts. Beat well. Stir together flour and baking powder. Gradually add to creamed mixture, mixing to make a smooth dough. Do not chill. Divide dough. Add to each section enough food coloring to achieve color desired. Knead by hand wearing a rubber glove or in a bowl using the back side of a spoon. Fit a cookie press with the desired template and fill with dough (you can put more than one color in the press to get multi-color cookies). Press out cookies 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes on cooling grid. Remove cookies from cookie sheet and continue to cool on grid.
