If you were to come to my house to make these yummy treats, you'd use something that looks like this:
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp extract - peppermint, almond, vanilla, etc. (Almond is my flavorite.....get it, flavorite!?)
2 1/4 cup flour
Optional: food coloring and sprinkles
1. Mix butter, sugar, egg, salt, extract and flour until well combined. Add a few drops of food coloring and mix until dough is to desired color.
2. Load up your cookie press with the dough and desired cookie mold. Press cookies onto cookie sheet and decorate with sprinkles, red hots, etc.
