"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

1 c. butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 1/4 c. flour
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 400. Cream butter, sugar, egg and vanilla
until light and fluffy. Reduce to low speed or beat by hand to
stir in flour and salt until well-mixed.

Dough can be divided and tinted if desired. Chill for easier

Force dough through cookie press onto ungreased cookie
sheet. To form wreaths, use the star die-cut pattern in the
cookie press. Use this to form 2-3" diameter circles on
baking sheet. Decorate with green sugar and add cinnamon
red-hot candies as holly berries.

Bake 8-14 minutes until light golden brown around edges.

Personal Notes:
Lately, the cinnamon red-hots I've used
have melted in the oven. Cookies still taste great, but not
quite as pretty. I'm experimenting with red decorating "gel"
this year. The packaging says you can bake it and it will cool
to a hard, shiny finish. We'll see!

The original recipe called for 3/4 tsp. almond extract instead of vanilla. We recommend you try the almond as well.
