Decorate your Spritz cookies
Spritzgebäck Spritz Christmas cookies are yummy just as they come from the oven. But if you want to decorate them, just sprinkle the cookies prior to baking with colored sugars for a festive look. You can also dip them in melted chocolate or even tint the dough before pressing for tempting and pretty additions to your holiday cookie tray.

Spritzgebäck Spritz Christmas Cookies
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1-1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- Colored sugar and sprinkles, as desired to decorate
Preheat oven to 375°
In a large bowl, cream butter, confectioners’ sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. Gradually beat flour into creamed mixture.
Bake 6-8 minutes or until set but not brown. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Yield: about 7-1/2 dozen.
RECIPE NOTE: I have a Pampered Chef Cookie Press and the cookies are larger than other presses make so I got closer to 5 dozen. I baked my cookies 12-14 minutes just until beginning to lightly brown.
