Spritz Cookies
  • 3½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 + ½ cups softened butter (softened at room temp)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon butter flavoring (or other flavoring of your choice. Almond or Lemon would be nice)
  1. In mixing bowl, place butter and sugar and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, and flavorings and beat again until well combined. Add in flour and baking powder and beat once more until a good dough is formed (will only take a minute or so), scraping down sides as needed.
  2. Place dough in cookie press and add a stencil to the bottom according to cookie press directions. Pipe out onto ungreased cookie sheets and sprinkle with colored sugars. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until just lightly browned around the edges. Repeat until all dough is used.
*Most spritz cookie dough has to be refrigerated to firm up before use but this one doesn't.
Makes about 6 dozen
