Holiday Spritz Cookies Recipe

Spritz are rich buttery cookies that can be formed

into a variety of shapes using a cookie press. In

minutes, you can have an entire pan of fancy cookies

that are ready to bake.

Spritz

1-1/2 cups butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Colored sugar

Beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high

speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and baking powder.

Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl

occasionally. Beat in egg, vanilla, and almond extract

until combined. Beat in as much flour as you can.

Using a wooden spoon, stir in remaining flour.

Filling press

Do not chill the dough. It will be too firm to force

through the cookie press. Before you fill the cookie

press, select the design plate that you would like to

use to shape your cookies. Assemble the cookie press

following the directions that come with the cookie

press. Pack the dough into the cookie press using a

rubber spatula or small metal spoon. Place the top on

the cookie press and adjust the plunger to compress

the dough.
