Shortbread Cookies

Here is a fun recipe to try if you have small children. Since the holidays are just around the corner, shortbread is a great recipe to make in advance and freeze. This recipe is intended for use with a cookie press which you can pick up at a kitchen shop or even some art supplies stores.

1 1/2 cups butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
3 T milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder

1. Cream butter and sugar in an electric mixer until fluffy.
2. Add egg, milk and vanilla and beat well.
3. Slowly add dry ingredients and mix until dough is smooth.
4. Fill cookie press with dough and press cookies directly onto a baking sheet. (Make sure the sheet is not greased and do not use parchment paper as the cookies will not stick to the pan when you press them.)
5. Bake at 375º F for approximately 10 minutes until slightly golden around the edges.
6. Let cool on a rack.
