spritz cookies.

So, confession.

We threw a bridal shower for my to-be sister-in-law a couple weekends ago, and she got some really great presents. One of them was a Spritz cookie maker…which I couldn’t help but get one for myself right after the shower.

I know, I know. What a copycat. But it’s so cute I just couldn’t resist.

It’s the Wilton Cookie Pro Ultra II Cookie Press, and it’s fairly easy to use. Take note that your cookie sheets can’t be greasy AT ALL or else the cookies won’t stick when you press them down. I’ve even heard of people chilling their cookie sheets before putting the cookies down to make them a little more grip-y. Some shapes worked better than others, but overall they turned out completely adorable.

I found this really great recipe online (in the Amazon reviews of all places), and they turned out so good Josh and I couldn’t stop eating them.

 Spritz Cookies

1 cup butter, softened (set on counter for about 15 minutes)
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 egg yolks, room temperature
2 1/2 cups flour (I used Pillsbury gf flour and they turned out great)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar.

Add egg yolks and vanilla, mixing well.

In a small bowl whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together.

Add dry ingredients slowly to the wet ingredients and mix until the dough is mixed—should have a consistency similar to fresh Play-Doh. If your dough is sticky, add flour a tablespoon at a time. If it seems dry, add softened butter a tablespoon at a time.

Fill press with dough and press on to cookie sheets. You won’t be able to get the dough all in it one time, which actually works well because then you can switch out shapes each time you fill.

Top with colored sugars or other sprinkles. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets for 8–10 minutes. Do not use parchment paper.

Cool for a few minutes on cookie sheets before removing and placing on cooling racks.

Serve with milk and enjoy!
