Looking back, I should have made these more exciting with Champagne or something like that. Doesn’t “spritz” sound bubbly or effervescent or something fun?? Anywho – instead of being overly effervescent, these are light and fluffy and they actually melt in your mouth. So I guess in a way they are effervescent and definitely fun.
1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
2-1/4 cups GF All-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon almond extract (this is where you could substitute for something really fun)
1/2 teaspoon Xantham Gum
Cream butter. Mix in sugar and egg. Add remaining ingredients, and mix well. Place dough into Cookie Press. Press cookies using desired shape disc onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Use your imagination and sprinkle with colored sugars, candies, anything you want to make them look pretty. Or, just leave them as is. The possibilities are endless.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 8-9 minutes.
Makes about 4-5 dozen cookies
