Christmas Spritz Cookies

My favorite Christmas cookies are Butter Spritz.  I love their uncomplicated flavor, which makes a perfect dunking cookie.  This is the recipe I have been using for many years, which makes a tried and true cookie.

2 sticks of softened, unsalted butter
2 c confectioner's sugar
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 t almond or lemon extract
1 large egg, room temperature
2 1/4 c all purpose flour
1 t baking powder
sprinkles for garnish

Cookie press

Preheat oven to 350.  Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.  Add extracts and egg and beat to incorporate.  The mixture may look separated.  Stir together the flour and baking powder and add to the creamed mixture a bit at a time.  Mix until combined.

Fill your cookie press and press cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Top with sprinkles and bake for 8 minutes, until firm but not browning.  Allow to cool for a few minutes then remove to a rack and allow to thoroughly cool.

These keep well in the pantry in tupperware and they freeze very well.

  1. OH! I remember these tasty little gems, but it has been years since I have both made them and eaten them. In fact, I believe I gave my press to my oldest daughter many years ago.
    Yum, yum, enjoy.

    Joy! Debbie
