Christmas wrap-up: part 2

This year Jon decided to participate in his work's annual Cookie Exchange.  There were only 6 people who signed up, he being the only male.  We decided to finish off the spritz cookie dough I had made the previous weekend at my Pampered Chef Open House.  They were just so easy to make a bunch and they taste so yummy!

For this cookie exchange, each set of 6 cookies had to be individually wrapped.  I drove my husband a bit crazy because I took the time to put them in small, clear treat bags with festive scrapbook paper with zig zagged edges.  Super easy, but so nice.  (He was slightly embarrassed, but they got lots of compliments!)

Classic Spritz Cookies

1 1/2 sticks butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
assorted sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350.  Beat butter on medium speed until creamy.  Add sugar, egg, and vanilla.  Beat well.  Slowly add flour, 1 cup at a time, until all mixed.  Dough will be soft.  Don't refrigerate.  

Fill cookie press with dough, pick desired disk, put lid on and press away.  Then sprinkle with sprinkles and stick in the oven for about 10 minutes.  

This recipe will bake approx. 6-7 dozen cookies . . . .perfect for cookie exchanging!
