  • 1 c. butter, softened
  • 2/3 c. sugar
  • 1 lg. egg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla, almond or lemon flavoring
  • 2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine butter, sugar, egg and flavoring; beat at medium speed until smooth and fluffy. Add flour, baking powder and salt, stirring until well combined. Dough can be divided and tinted, if desired. If dough is too soft, chill until workable. Force dough through a cookie press onto an ungreased baking sheet.

Decorate with colored sugar, cinnamon candies, sprinkles or jimmies, etc. Bake near center of oven for 8 to 14 minutes until cookies are light golden around the edges. Yield: 6 dozen.
