Spritz Cookies


  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 25 mins
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 3 dozen cookies


  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • Candy sprinkles, colored decorator sugars, or frosting (for decoration)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, sugar, egg, salt and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until creamy (about 2-3 minutes), scraping sides of bowl as necessary to make sure that all ingredients are combined.
  2. Reduce speed to low and add flour slowly (about ½ a cup at a time). Beat until well mixed (about 1-2 additional minutes).
  3. Chill dough for 15 to 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  5. Place dough into a cookie press and form the dough into desired shapes about 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. (Decorate with colored sugar before baking if desired, or you can wait to decorate until after the cookies have been baked.)
  6. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes until edges of cookie are lightly browned.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool for several minutes on the cookie sheet. When the cookies are firm enough to remove with a spatula, cool on a wire rack until completely cooled.
  8. Decorate the cookies more if desired.
