These spritz cookies are nothing short of melt-in-your-mouth buttery goodness that’s addictingly delicious oven-fresh or dressed in seasonal decor!
Servings 72 cookies (6 dozens)
- 1 1/2 cups butter softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- colored sugar, sprinkles, red hots, jimmies optional
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, using a handheld electric mixer on medium speed, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla and combine well. Turn the mixer on low and mix in the flour, just until incorporated. (Dough will be soft but do not refrigerate).
Spoon the dough into a cookie press fitted with the disk of your choice. Press the dough onto ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Decorate with colored sugar, sprinkles, red hots, jimmies, as desired.
Bake in the preheated oven, until set, about 6-8 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes then remove to wire racks and cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
