It's Cookie Time
written by Angela from Windy City Knits

The holiday season is upon us and one of my favorite gifts to give is home baked cookies. Some of my  favorites to make are biscotti, decorated sugar cookie cutouts, and spritz cookies. I love to get my kids involved too. And after taking the time to do all this baking, why not package them in the prettiest way by using handmade tags, cards and vintage platters from Etsy

Easy Peasy Spritz Cookies
from Beth of BPRDesigns

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
21/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder

Cream shortening, butter and sugar together well.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Gradually blend in dry ingredients which have been sifted together.  Filled cookie press and form on ungreased cookie sheets.  Sprinkle with holiday decorative sugars and bake at 350 degrees F for 10-11 minutes (or until slightly brown on the edges). Yields about 60 cookies.

Happy Baking!
