Pumpkin Spritz Recipe

Easy and yummy

Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/3 cup canned or cooked pumpkin (no skin!)

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

additional ground nutmeg

Method

Pre-heat oven to 400 F.
In a large mixing bowl beat butter until creamy; beat
in sugar and
spices until well combined. Mix in pumpkin, egg and vanilla until well combined.

In a
separate bowl, stir together flour and baking powder. Stir flour mixture into
butter
mixture until well combined.
Place into a cookie press and press out shapes
onto an
ungreased baking sheet (for best results use a silver-colored baking sheet,
not the kind
with a non-stick surface). Lightly sprinkle cookies with additional nutmeg.

Bake 6 to 8
minutes or until set but not browned.
Allow to cool 2 minutes on baking sheet
then
remove to wire racks to cool completely.
