Directions

Cream butter and shortening in large bowl. Add sugar gradually. Beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in separate bowl. Add to butter mixture in 3 additions; mixing well after each addition. Dough will be stiff. Fill cookie press. Press cookies on ungreased, uncoated cookie sheets. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown around the edges. This recipe may be varied in flavor and color by using different spices and/or extracts, or by adding food coloring to the dough in Step 3. The following variations will give you a good start. Chocolate Almond: Decrease vanilla to 1 tsp; add 1 tsp almond extract and 3 T cocoa. Egg Nog: Add ½ tsp ground nutmeg to flour. Orange: Substitute 2 tsp orange extract for the vanilla; add 1 T finely grated orange peel. Raspberry Nut: Substitute 1 ½ tsp coconut extract for the vanilla; 2 T seedless red raspberry jam. Sprinkle with chopped nuts before baking.
