Spritz Cookies

1 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
green food coloring

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Meanwhile, cream the butter and sugar in an electric mixer. Add the egg and extract. Slowly add the dry ingredients until everything is well combined. Add a few drops of green food coloring until it is the shade of green that you want. Place in a cookie press with a tree shaped  stencil and press onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Add sprinkles. Bake for 9-11 minutes until the edges are slightly golden brown.
