Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • Colored decorating sugar
  • Red hot candies

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Combine the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat on high speed until the mixture is pale and fluffy. Add the salt, egg and vanilla and beat until well combined. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, mix in the flour until thoroughly blended.

  3. Gently form the dough into a log shape. Following the manufacturer's instructions, fill a cookie press with the dough (working in several batches) and dispense the cookies at least 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

  4. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden. Sprinkle with colored sugar, add red hot candy and cool on a wire rack. Can be stored at room temperature for 3 days or 1 month frozen.
