Lemon Spritz Cookies

1 1/2 sticks margarine, softened (6 ounces)
1 tbsp lemon juice, at room temperature
1 tsp lemon peel, finely grated
2 1/4 cups unbleached flour
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven at 350. Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.

In a mixing bowl, combine margarine, lemon juice, and lemon peel. In another mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon dough into a cookie press (with desired shape template). Press cookies about 2" apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or lightly browned.

Makes about 3 dozen.

Spritz Cookies

1 cup of powdered sugar
1 cup of margarine or butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of almond extract
2 1/3 cups of all purpose flour
(I like to use the unbleached kind)
1/2 teaspoon of salt

Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large bowl, combined powered sugar and margarine, blend well. Stir in remaining ingredients; blend well.

Fill cookie press with a small amount of dough into desired shapes onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Here's where you can decorate the cookies with sprinkles and colored sugar crystals. Bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes or until set but not browned. Immediately remove from cookie sheet.
