Flower Spritz Cookies for Springtime

I'm trying to get more into baking again. I baked these little flower spritz cookies last Friday. I'd never made them this shape before, and I'm pleased with how 'puffy' they turned out. They were chewy too. Mmm. =9

Here's the recipe for those who are interested.
1½ c. butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. almond extract
3½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
few drops of food coloring (optional)

Preheat oven to 375°F. Thoroughly cream butter and sugar. Add egg, milk, vanilla and almond extract; beat well. Stir together flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture, mixing to make a smooth dough. If you decide to add any food coloring, make sure to add a bit more flour to keep the consistency of the dough rather thick, as water-based food colorings will thin out the mixture. Place dough into cookie press and press cookies onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-9 minutes or until very lightly browned around edges. Remove cookies from baking sheet so the bottoms don't get burned.
