This classic holiday cookie is buttery and just about melts in your mouth. We piped our cookies (it takes a little muscle!), but you can use a cookie press like your mom or grandma used to use every holiday season.
Spritz cookies are super versatile. Color the dough. Flavor the dough. Decorate with sprinkles. Dip in chocolate. Do whatever makes you happy. We made these with dough in its most naked form with just a little vanilla to resemble those Danish cookies you can buy everywhere this time of year. But you do you!!
This recipe makes 4 dozen cookies, depending on how hard you press. We didn't count as we ate a bunch of the "ugly" ones. You'll probably end up with more!
These are a great choice if you want to ship a gift to someone, as they are still tasty after a week if you keep them tightly sealed. To extend their life, you can also store in the fridge for an extra few days or the freezer for up to a month.
ingredients and tools
NOTE: Remember that the cookies will stick to the paper/silicone liner, so you should hold the press vertically, touch the rim to the pan, press quickly and then lift vertically for the best shape. You can place them fairly close together - about 1-2 inches between - as they do not expand very much.
