favorite spritz cookie recipe?


Recommended Posts

I have to make cookies tomorrow to take to a dance class event, so might as well start my holiday baking. I'm thinking of making spritz cookies for the first time. I will pick up the OXO Spritz gun tomorrow at Bed Bath and Beyond (with a coupon), but need a really good recipe. 


Any suggestions?

Spritz Cookies


3/4 cup Butter

1/2 cup of powdered or regular sugar

1 t * vanilla extract

1 T** milk

1 T lemon juice

1 eggs

1 3/4 cups of flour

1/2 t baking powder


*t = teaspoon

** T= tablespoon


Mix all ingredients into a dough ball. Fill into spritz gun. Bake at F350 for approx. 12 minutes. Check since oven temps can vary.


You can dip them into melted chocolate or decorate any way you like. :)

ETA: You may have to double or triple for a crowd since this is the recipe I use for just family.

All. Of. Them.


All the cookies.




Ok, that made me laugh! We never had them as a kid, but I did help a friend make them once, in jr. high. I was fascinated by them. 


I'm actually very excited to go get the press. And the one I'm getting is very simple, so that the kids can help me too :)

1c butter

3/4c sugar

2 1/2c flour

1t salt

3/4t almond extract

1 egg

green food coloring for trees, red for wreaths  :D

My recipe calls for 8-10 minutes at 350, but they take 5 minutes in my oven, and I don't know why.


I should probably go downstairs and double check that, but I've been making them for nearly 38 years and just did a batch the other day, so I think I'm good.

Update: after trying the Wilton recipe I switched and tried the Land O Lakes recipe, which was much better. Easier to make, and worked better. However, warning, do NOT use a dark cookie sheet, the bottoms got too dark on the ones on the black cookie pan. (my mom's pan, all mine are silver, and luckily I'd brought one with me.)


Although now I'm going to try Carrie's recipe, as it looks similar but a bit sweeter, and my kids wanted sweeter. And alower temp, which I think is better.

I always double mine


1 c butter

2/3 C sugar

2 egg yolks (use the white for meringue kisses - after baking, leave them in the oven until it's cooled.)

1 tsp vanilla (real tastes better than imitation)

2 1/2 C flour, sifted


put in a press, press onto sheets, decorate as desired.  bake at 375 for 7 - 9 minutes.
