Melinda's Quick Mix Spritz

These are cookies my mom would make every Christmas when we were kids,
and I've continued the tradition with mine.

2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 cup butter or margarine
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Heat oven to 375

Sift flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture is full of very fine lumps. Measure the egg into a measuring cup. A large egg will measure 1/4 cup; if it doesn't, add water to the 1/4 cup line. Add egg and vanilla and beat well. Fill cookie press; form cookies on ungreased cookie sheets. If desired, decorate with colored sugars or sprinkles before baking.

Bake 10-12 minutes.

Yield: 5-6 dozen
