These pressed sugar cookies can be decorated for any occasion or holiday. Made with Musselman’s Apple Butter.
In a large bowl, cream butter, apple butter, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, egg yolks, vanilla, and almond extract.
In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
Shape dough into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375° F degrees. Grease a baking sheet.
Using a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop, scoop dough into balls about 2 Tablespoons each, place onto the prepared baking sheet.
Put 1/4 c of sugar and a pinch of salt in a dish. Stick the bottom of a glass in it. This is going to be your cookie press. Firmly press it into the center of your dough ball. You want your dough to spill out over the sides of the glass. If there is a lip it’s even better.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Let cool before frosting.
FROSTING: In a medium-sized bowl, mix powdered sugar, apple butter, melted butter and vanilla extract together until combined. Frost cooled cookies and sprinkle with sprinkles.
