This recipe came straight off the box of my Wilton Spritz Cookie Press; it works very well with different types of cookie presses, too (like Mirro, etc). You do not chill the dough for this one, and it's easiest to work with within a couple of hours of preparation. You can color the dough w/ food coloring, and also use different types of extracts for flavorings. I like to use lemon extract in place of the almond, and add lemon zest to my dough ... delicious lemon spritz!

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

1 1/2 c
butter, softened
1 c
granulated sugar
1
egg
2 Tbsp
milk

How to Make Spritz Cookie Recipe

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • 2In a large bowl, thoroughly cream together butter and sugar. Add egg, milk, vanilla and almond extracts; beat well.
  • 3In a medium bowl, stir together flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture, mixing well to make a smooth dough.
  • 4Do not chill! Place dough into cooking press and press cookies onto UNgreased cookie sheet.
    Note: I find it easier to get the dough into the press if I roll it into a 'snake' in a narrow-enough dimension to just lower the 'snake' into the barrel of the cookie press, and then push the dough all the way down to the bottom.
  • 5Bake at 400 degrees for 6 - 8 minutes. Remove cookies from sheet and cool on cooling rack.
  • 6Makes 6 dozen cookies.
