Vanilla Spritz Cookies

Cardamom adds an unusual accent to these traditional favorites

Yield: Makes about 3 dozen



Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine the butter and granulated sugar in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer set on high speed, beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla extract, cardamom and salt. Using a spoon, stir in the flour until well-mixed.

Pack the dough into a cookie press. Fit with the desired design plate. Press the dough out onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing the cookies 1-inch apart.

Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Gently transfer the cookies to wire racks. Sprinkle with vanilla sugar, if desired, and let cool. Store in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.

A touch of cardamom adds an unusual accent to what is essentially a vanilla cookie. Be sure to use only a large egg for this recipe to achieve a dough consistency that will extrude properly with the desired plate.
