Scandinavian Recipes | Cookies & Bars

3/4 cup sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 scant teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon almond, vanilla, lemon, or mint flavoring
1/8 teaspoon salt
Mix together all ingredients.  Separate the dough into 2-3 parts and color each part with red or green food coloring, if you wish.  Follow directions for spritz "gun," filling and dropping cookies onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Cookies can be quite close together.  Sprinkle with colored sugars, chocolate sprinkles, red hots, etc.  Bake at 400 for 6-9 minutes or until set but not browned.
