Whisk the flour and salt together in a bowl, set aside. In a large bowl beat the butter and powdered sugar. Add the egg, vanilla and almond extract to the bowl. Beat until combined well. Add the flour to the bowl of butter mixture and beat until combined. Switch to a wooden spoon if the batter gets too thick for your mixer.


Divide the dough into three equal portions. Fill a cookie press with one portion of the dough and fit a metal disk on the end. Add the red food dye to one portion of dough and the green to the remaining portion of cookie dough. Mix the coloring in well with no uneven streaks of color. Set aside until needed.

Press the uncolored Spritz cookie dough onto a cookie sheet leaving about 2 inches between each cookie. Add a candied cherry to the center of each cookie. Repeat with each color of dough. Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator while you press the remaining Spritz cookies. Bake the cookies at 365°F for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool before frosting.

Christmas Spritz Cookies can be decorated by coloring the cookie dough, topped with a candied cherry and drizzling with icing. You can also decorate them by sprinkling holiday sprinkles over the icing before it hardens.
