Spritz Cookies

Beth Pierce


These melt in your mouth adorable little buttery Spritz Cookies are made easy with seven ingredients in a cookie press. I love to bake them for friends and family during the Christmas holidays. Although they sell discs for many other holidays as well so you can use your cookie press year round. The kids love to help with these simple cookies so get the whole family involved in the holiday festivities.

How to Make Spritz Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Arrange oven rack in center of oven.
  2. Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment or a hand mixer cream your butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla extract, almond extract, and salt mixing just until combined. Turn the mixer to low and add the flour mixing just until incorporated.
  3. Fill the cookie press and press the cookies on to a cool baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake in a preheated oven for 6-7 minutes or until very lightly browned on the edges.
  4. Wait for the cookies to fully cool before dunking or drizzling with chocolate or powdered sugar glaze. Decorate with sprinkles, sanding sugar or nonpareils immediately after. If you want to decorate without dunking or drizzling simply speckle with sprinkles, sanding sugar, or nonpareils before placing in the oven to bake.
