I have had these Christmas cookies ever since I can remember. It would just not be Christmas without them. And I know everyone in my family agrees!
Mom’s Spritz Cookies
1 c. vegetable shortning
3/4 c. sugar
2-1/4 c. sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp almond extract
Heat oven to 375° F. Cream shortening; gradually add sugar. Add egg; beat well. Add dry ingredients & extract. Color with a little green good coloring (or any other color, if desired). Put in a cookie press and press onto an ungreased cookie sheet and decorated with nonpareils if desired. Bake at 375° F for 10-12 minutes. Watch these cookies while cooking as you do not want to brown.
