Spritz BonBons

Here is a cookie I’ve been making since 1973 since I saw it in Family Circle Christmas Helps 1973 magazine.  I still have the magazine I got the recipe from.  I think this magazine is what started my love for cookie baking.  This cookie is a light buttery cookie with a light lemon taste. The cookie press I use is from Wal-Mart made by Wilton, but you can certainly use any cookie recipe you prefer and make them in any shape or color you like!

 

 

Ingredients:

 

1 and 1/2 cups softened butter (3 sticks)

1 cup sugar

3 egg yolks

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon lemon extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 and 1/2 cups pre-sifted all-purpose flour

Assorted color sugars or sprinkles

 

Directions:

 

Beat butter, sugar and egg yolks in a large bowl at high-speed until light and fluffy. 

Blend in vanilla, lemon extract and salt.  Stir in flour gradually to make a soft dough.

Fit a disk into cookie press and fill with dough.  Press onto UN-greased cookie sheets.

Sprinkle with colored  sugar or Christmas sprinkles.

Bake 375 F for 8 minutes.  Remove to a wire rack and cool.
