Classic spritz cookie recipe that is buttery rich and pressed into a variety of designs using a spritz cookie press.
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Decorating sugar or nonpareils
  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
  3. Fit cookie press with desired template. Fill with dough. Press dough into desired shapes 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with decorator sugar. Bake 8-14 minutes or until edges of cookies are very lightly browned. Time will be different for every oven so check at 8 minutes to start. My oven took 10 minutes.
  4. Tip: If the dough is too warm and sticking to the cookie press, chill dough in the fridge until easier to press. Chill dough in bowl not in press or it will stick.
