RC's Chocolate Hazelnut Spritz Cookies Recipe

 Every year I try to make a new Christmas cookie and this year, I created my own recipe that is so delightful I've already made it twice, and have a feeling that the third batch is coming soon. The recipe's already been passed a few times, so I thought I would share it here as well.

RC's Chocolate Hazelnut Spritz Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons hazelnut extract
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)

1. Pre-heat over to 350° F

2. Cream butter, sugar, egg, hazelnut, and vanilla in a mixing bowl

3. Slowly mix in flour, cocoa, and salt until dry ingredients are wet (it will probably look sort of like sand)

4. Mix on high until it becomes well mixed (more of a thick play-dough consistency, dark brown)

5. Press through cookie press onto cool ungreased cookie sheet

6. Cook in preheated oven for six minutes

7. Once completely cooled drizzle with melted dark chocolate
