Every single year as far back as I can remember we always make Spritz Cookies. They are so yummy. The almond flavor and the fun shapes you get to create. They are probably the most eaten treat at our house during the holidays. We usually have to make 2 to 3 batches. Anyways here is the recipe.

You'll need
Spritz cookie press
Cookie Sheet
1 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Green and red food coloring. 
Sprinkles as desired 

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. 2. Mix ingredients together. Split dough in half to make some green and some red. 3. Place dough in cookie press with desired shape (I used trees and flowers and the little star for the wreaths) Press onto cookie sheet. 4. Bake until set but not brown. 6 to 9 minutes. 

-You should clean out the cookie press each time you change the color of the dough. i.e. if you are changing from red to green so the colors don't mix together. 
-On some of the cookies we places sprinkles on them before baking to add holiday decorations. I hope you enjoy the first holiday recipe of many.
