Brown Sugar Spritz Recipe

Makes about 60

Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

for pineapple filling:

29 1/2 ounces crushed pineapple, drained

1 cup sugar

red and green food coloring

Method

Make pineapple filling. In a saucepan stir together pineapple and sugar, bring
to boiling.

Reduce heat and simmer until mixture is very thick, 30 to 35 minutes, stirring
often.

Divide fruit filling in half. Using a few drops of food coloring, tint half
of the filling red and
the other half green. Cool thoroughly.
Preheat oven to 400F.
Cream together
butter and
brown sugar; beat in egg and vanilla. Stir together flour and baking powder;
add gradually
to creamed mixture, mixing until smooth. Do not chill.
Place half of the dough
in the
cookie press. Using the ribbon plate, press dough in ten 10-inch strips on ungreased
cookie sheets. Using star plate and remaining dough, press lengthwise rows of
dough on
top of each strip, making a rim along both edges.
Spoon red or green pineapple
filling
between rims on top of ribbon strips.
Bake cookies at 400F for 8 to 10 minutes.
While
hot, cut
strips into 1 1/4 inch diagonals. Cool.
