I found this recipe while browsing online and think it's the best recipe I have tried so far when it comes to spritz cookie recipes! This recipe calls for brown sugar instead of white sugar, which gives these cookies a more flavorful and moist taste than your regular spritz cookie. Spritz cookies are a rich, buttery, Scandinavian cookie formed into a variety of fanciful shapes when the dough is forced through a cookie press/gun.
These are perfect for the holidays or anytime of the year! Enjoy!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar and baking powder. Beat until combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in egg, vanilla, and almond extract until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour.
Force unchilled dough through a cookie press fitted with a star or flower disk onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
