Butter Cookies for a Cookie Press

I recently bought a cookie press. So, of course the hunt ensued for a good, basic butter cookie to try out. Who knew such a basic recipe could be so yummy. It was fun to experiment with the shapes. I'm pretty sure you have the ingredients on hand. This recipe is unique in that I have never had to boil en egg for the batter before. Try it out. See what you think. 

Norweigian Butter Cookies

1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Hard boil the eggs and separate the yolks. Cream the butter and hard boiled egg yolks. Beat in the sugar and add the flour vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly. Put through a cookie press or arrange by teaspoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned.
