Christmas Spritz Cookies

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset


pritz cookies not only taste amazing but are fun to make as well. If you don’t have a cookie press you can use a pastry bag with a large piping tip, but you have been warned they are not as much fun as pulling the trigger on a cookie press. A perfectly shaped cookie shoots through the disc in a second. You can make bakery-style cookies just as quickly as you can fill a barrel and pull the trigger. I realize this description makes baking cookies sound like an old western movie standoff. Bake these cookies and you will soon see how much fun making cookies can be.



1 cup room temperature butter

3/4 cup sugar

2 eggs whites

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. salt

2 1/4 cups flour


  1. In a mixer beat the butter and sugar until well combined.
  2. Add egg whites and mix until very smooth consistency.
  3. Next, add flour, salt, and vanilla. Mix until batter comes together.
  4. Place dough into cookie press and press cookies onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. If your cookies are having trouble sticking to the cookie sheet it is usually a temperature issue. Try removing parchment from cookie sheets and refrigerating your cookie sheets. Allowing the dough to warm up will also help the dough stick to the cookie sheet surface.
  5. If you are going to decorate with sugar or sprinkles do it at this stage before baking.
  6. Bake cookies in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes or until dough is just beginning to golden. Do not over-bake these cookies, they will continue to bake on the cookie sheet.
