Delicious and simple holiday spritz cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • colored sugars or sprinkles for decorating

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  I placed my cookie sheet in the refrigerator to chill, this helps to keep the dough from spreading.
  • In a small bowl stir together the flour and the salt and set aside.
  • Cream the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks, the vanilla and the almond extract and mix just until combined.  
  • Mix in the dry ingredients a little at a time until well combined.
  • Fill your cookie press with dough and press 2 inches apart onto the chilled cookie sheet. Sprinkle with colored sugar or sprinkles. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until the sides just begin to brown. Remove from oven and allow them to sit on the pan for 3 to five minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

    Hi Chrissy,
    Thank you for this recipe. I got a cookie press and this was my first time making these with my granddaughter! I’m so glad that I tried your recipe first! They turned out so good we were jumping up and down! 

  2. My cookies turned out great! Followed exact recipe. Will use this again! Thank you! 

  3. I also like to color some of my dough red and green and then put a little of each color in the cookie press. If you put it in so the 3 colors red, green and plain are laying side by side you get some very pretty Christmas colored rainbow cookies.

  4. I love Jesus too!!
    And these cookies came out so cute and yummy 😋.I was so excited to try a new cookie recipe this year and yours will be added to my Christmas tradition year after year.
    Merry Christmas 🎄

  5. I love this cookie, but cannot get the dough to release from the cookie press.
    Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

Where to next?
