In a large bowl beat until creamy the butter and sugar, then add the egg and vanilla, beating on medium to combine.
Add 1 1/2 cups of flour (a little at a time), the last 1/4 cup mix with a wooden spoon until combined into a firm dough.
Place a little dough at a time into the cookie press and make the cookie forms (sprinkles can be added before baking). Bake for approximately 10 minutes (should be light in colour) let cool top with cherry halves or chocolate if desired. Enjoy!
