1/2 t salt

1 1/2 cup butter softened

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1 t vanilla

1/2 t almond extract

Mix dry ingredients together and set aside.Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add egg and flavorings and mix. Add dry ingredients in thirds until combined.

Fill cookie press with dough and then disc of choice. Press onto cookie sheet and decorate with sprinkles. Bake 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool.

Food coloring can be incorporated for the different designs.

Occasionally I have had to chill the dough for 15-20 minutes.

Read cookie press reviews before buying a cookie press. They do not always perform equally.
