Chocolate Spritz Cookies

If you've got a chocolate lover on your list, layer these pretty cookies between sheets of waxed paper in a nice holiday tin and you'll be sure to have someone's gratitude.
  • 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate -- coarsely chopped
  • 2 1/4 c. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. butter -- softened
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Melt the chocolate in a microwavable dish by microwaving it on HIGH for 30 seconds at a time, mixing the chocolate after each cooking.

Combine the flour and salt in a small bowl; stir to mix.

Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and extract. Add the chocolate and beat again. Gradually add the flour mixture while mixing.

Fit a cookie press with your desired plate and fill the press with the dough. Press the dough 1 inch apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake the cookies for 7 minutes or until set. Remove them to a wire rack and cool completely. Store tightly covered at room temperature.
