@CeliaBreslin's #Holiday Extravaganza: #Recipes, #Books on Tour, & More!

Hi Everyone!


 The holiday season is upon us! I'm kicking off the holidays with a fun multi-author book tour for my Tranquilli Bloodline vampires and Black Hills wolves, plus a fab giveaway, December 2 - 20. Visit my website in December for more info. To help you get in the holiday spirit, here are tunes you might like to check out, and...cookies! Enjoy!

Celia's Holiday Spritz Cookies “our
Cookies are one of my favorite, sweet indulgences for the holidays. My family makes spritz cookies every December. Delicious! Here’s my mother’s recipe (that I love to post every year around this time). Requires cookie press.

3/4 cup regular sugar (some recipes call for “powdered”, but mom swears by regular!)
1 cup margarine, or butter, or shortening (mom uses shortening; I use butter. Both are delish.)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. In a bowl, mix together margarine (or butter or shortening), sugar, vanilla, egg until fairly fluffy.
3. Stir in flour, salt, baking powder.
4. Optional: separate dough into bowls, add food dye of your choosing (see photo).
5. Fill cookie press; press dough onto ungreased cookie sheets.
6. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes.
7. Remove from sheet and cool on cookie rack.
8. Eat. All. The. Cookies!
