Spritz are Scandinavian cookies made into decorative shapes via the use of a cookie press.  I made this almond variation of these delightful cookies.

Almond Spritz

Ingredients:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg
3/4 cup ground almonds/ almond meal
1 1/4 + 1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, beat sugar, butter, egg and almond extract until light and fluffy.
Add flour, ground almonds and salt and blend well.  Refrigerate for 30-45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Fill cookie press and fit with desired plate.  Press dough onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Sprinkle colored sugar on top.
Bake for 5 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned.
Remove from cookie sheets and cool.

Hope you enjoy this nutty variation!
