Wilton Classic Spritz Cookies
Prepare these rich and buttery, classic holiday cookies in winter shapes like Christmas trees and snowflakes. Add food coloring to some of the dough before baking. Or add spinkles, jimmies or other decorations while the cookies are still warm to create different kinds! Then once you get the basic Classic Spritz Cookie down, make all sorts of flavors! Try making the Cinnamon Apple Butter variety, or perhaps whip up a batch of Chocolate ones!

- Time:about an hour
1Prepare dough. Preheat oven to 350ºF. In bowl, combine 3-1/2 cups flour and 1 teaspoon baking powder. In bowl, beat 1-1/2 cups butter and 1 cup granulated sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add an egg, 2 tablespoons milk, 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture; beat until combined. (If you want some of your cookies in different colors, separate your dough into various sections and add the desired color of food coloring to each section.) Do not chill.
