Almond Butter Spritz Cookies

Technorati Tags: ,,,

 

1/4 lb almond paste
1-1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
3 cups sifted cake flour
1/2 cup eggs (2 large eggs and 1 yolk, usually)
1/2 lb (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

 

Set racks on the top and lower thirds of the oven and heat to 325 degrees.

Line cookies sheets or jelly roll pans with parchment paper or foil.

In a bowl, soften the almond paste with confectioners’ sugar and half the eggs.

Beat in butter gradually, then gradually add remaining eggs.  Cream all the ingredients until light, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the cake flour all at once and mix until well-blended.  Do not over mix.

Fill pastry bag.  Pipe half-inch shapes onto prepared pans with a half-inch star tube.

Bake for about 15 minutes, until golden and firm.

Cool cookies on the pans.

 

Yield:  about 72 2-inch cookies
