Christmas Spritz Cookies Recipe...

These delicious Christmas Spritz Cookies are a tradition at my cottage?  Why not make some this year?

Spritz Cookies Recipe
10 oz (280g) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 egg yolk
3 oz powdered sugar+1 heaping tablespoon sugar (100g)
1/4 teaspoon salt
11 oz (310g) all-purpose flour
4 oz (110g)  corn starch
3 tablespoons milk powder, optional
2 tablespoons full cream milk/whole milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Holiday-themed sprinkles
Cream the butter with sugar, egg yolk, salt and vanilla extract until fluffy. Add in the milk powder, whole milk, and mix well.
Fold in the all-purpose flour and corn starch. Mix until the dough becomes soft and does not stick to hands.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silplat.  Transfer the cookie dough into the cookie press with your desired pattern.  Squeeze the dough onto the baking sheets. Make sure to leave some space in between the cookies. Top the cookies with some sprinkles and place the baking sheets in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. This will firm up the dough so the cookies will maintain their shape when baked.
Bake for about 13-14 minutes, or until cookies are completely cooked through inside or turn slightly brown. Cool on rack.
