Classic Spritz Cookies

1 1/2 cups butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
colored sugar or sprinkles (optional)

Beat butter on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add sugar, egg and vanilla; beat well. Add flour, 1 cup at a time; mix well. Dough will be soft; do not refrigerate.

Optional Step: Fill cookie press, fitted with disk of your choice, with dough. Press dough onto flat baking sheet 1 inch apart. Decorate cookies with colored sugar or sprinkles, if desired.

If not using cookie press, roll dough into a log. Slice of cookies 1/4" thick. Place on baking sheet. Decorate with colored sugar or sprinkles, if desired.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until firm but not brown. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet; remove to cooling rack to finish cooling.

This recipe is a Pampered Chef recipe. Obviously with all of the butter they have a yummy flavor. They are fun to make with the kids if you have the cookie press. Let the kids pick the disk for the press. WARNING: YOU CAN'T EAT JUST ONE!
