Holiday Spritz Cookies

Spritz cookies. A childhood holiday staple of mine! I have memories of baking with my mom and adding sprinkles on the tops of the dough (probably adding a few too many). These are so small and cute, it's hard to eat just one! I hope you enjoy them as much as me.


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (room temp)
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg (room temp)
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • sprinkles


Preheat oven to 350 and line pans with parchment paper. Using a mixer, beat butter and sugar until smooth (around 2 minutes). Add egg and extracts and mix. On low, add flour and salt until mixture is fully combined. Add mix into the cookie press, press and add sprinkles. Bake for 7-9 minutes. If dough becomes too soft, refrigerate for 10 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
