Ingredients:

(makes 6 dozen mini cookies)

12 tablespoons butter, softened

⅓ cup sugar

¼ tsp. salt

1 large egg

½ tsp. vanilla

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1 ¾ all purpose flour

¼ whole wheat flour

 

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, whip butter with salt and sugar until creamy.

Add vanilla, egg, almond extract and mix until combined.

Add flours (whole wheat & all purpose) and stir until combined.

Option no. 1: You can roll out the dough and cut out the cookies with cookie cutters.

Or Option no. 2: You can do it the ‘Spritz’ way and use a cookie press (I used OXO cookie press) and press cookies. Place/Press cookies onto ungreased baking sheet or silicone mat on baking sheet.

Add sprinkles if you want to make it look pretty.

Bake for about 8 minutes, or until just beginning to brown.

Cool before serving. Makes 6 dozen small spritz cookies.
