I use the basic Betty Crocker spritz dough recipe:
|1||cup butter, softened|
|2 1/4||cups all-purpose flour|
|1/4||teaspoon almond extract or vanilla|
| ||Food color, if desired|

- Heat oven to 400ºF. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, salt, egg, almond extract and a few drops of food color.
- Place dough in cookie press. Form desired shapes on ungreased cookie sheet. Decorate with currants.
- Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until set but not brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
I always use almond extract in my spritz.
These actually get better with age.
I finish them by piping confectioner sugar icing over them.
