Press biscuits / spritz cookies

If you are a happy owner of a biscuit press, for example one like this, I'm sure you love to make hundreds of those little pretty biscuits. It's so much fun! It's like playing little biscuits factory. If you haven't tried yet, give it a go! Here's a recipe for those little beauties. If you don't have a press yet you can easily get one on ebay or amazon (I got mine from Lidl on a promo sale). For those who want to try a recipe without press, I have good news - this dough is versatile enough, you can even use piping bag and nozzle to create fancy shapes. What you're waiting for?

250g salted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 egg yolks
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place butter and sugar in a bowl and beat with mixer until it's light and fluffy. Add egg yolks - one at a time and mix until it's well incorporated. Add vanilla extract and flour and mix well. When the dough is ready, put a bit at a time in the press and shape biscuits by aligning plate side with greased tray and pressing the lever. Biscuits don't have to be far apart as they don't raise much. Bake them in 180C for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. After taking out of the oven, biscuits are very soft - give them couple minutes to firm up before moving them on a plate.
Enjoy :-)
