Author Farmhouse Made

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 whole egg beaten
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp vanilla bean paste adjust to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.

    Place cookie sheets in freezer.

    In medium bowl, sift together flour and baking powder. Set aside.

    In stand-mixer bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy (about 2 minutes).

    Add the egg, milk, vanilla, vanilla bean paste and mix again until fully combined (about 2 minutes). 

    Add the flour mixture, and mix well. Take out your cookie sheets from the freezer.

    Fill your cookie press, add the desired disc, press your cookies (1-2 clicks per cookie) close together, then decorate.

    Bake the cookies about 8 minutes, rotating your trays halfway through the baking time (4 minutes). Let the cookies sit on the tray for a minute or two, then transfer them to a cooling rack. 



Recipe Notes

If you choose to double this recipe:

  • Continue with 1 egg (do not use 2)
  •  Adjust your vanilla bean paste to 1 1/2 Tablespoons, unless you like that kind of thing. 

Wash your cookie sheet, and re-cool in the freezer between each batch for easier pressing.
