Pecan Spritz

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup pecan flour, or finely ground pecans*
Red and green decorating sugar or other holiday sprinkles

*To make 1 cup pecan flour, process 1 1/4 pecans in the bowl of a blender. A small food processor will do the trick as well.

Beat in egg and vanilla extract.

Blend in dry ingredients.

Put unchilled dough through a cookie press onto cookie sheet.

Sprinkle tops with colored sugar or sprinkles.
