This is a butter cookie recipe my mom, Tillie, used for Spritz cookies.
Mix together thoroughly:
1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
Stir in:3 tsp. Vanilla
Sift together and stir in:
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
Place dough in a cookie press and squeeze into desired shapes onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 3500. Do not burn.
Here is a small plate of Spritz Cookies. They were colored pink and were decorated with colored sprinkles before baking. Every Christmas, I use the christmas tree shaped disk to make green colored Christmas Trees sprinkled with red and green sprinkles.
The one on the right is an older verson by Mirro. It is ok to use, but not my favorite.
