Luella Larson's Spritz Cookies


1 cup sugar
2 cups (4 sticks) butter
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 to 4-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon almond extract


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, cream the sugar and butter together until the mixture is light and fluffy. With an electric mix set at moderate speed, blend in the egg and salt. Mix in the flour a little at a time until the batter is stiff but not dry. Beat in the almond extract. (Do not refrigerate the dough; it is best when soft.) Pack the dough into a cookie press with a ring. Press the cookies out onto 2 ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the cookies are golden and lightly browned on the edges. Remove from the sheets and cool on wire racks.
