Honey Spritz Cookies

Total Time:
1 hr
Prep:
45 min
Cook:
15 min

Yield:
about 60 cookies
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Coarse sugar and/or nonpareils, for decorating (optional)
Directions

Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.

Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Beat the butter and granulated sugar in a large bowl with a mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the egg, honey and vanilla and beat until combined. Reduce the mixer speed to low; add the flour mixture and beat until just incorporated (the dough will be soft).

Fill a cookie press with the dough according to the manufacturer's instructions; press out the cookies about 1 1/2 inches apart onto 2 ungreased baking sheets.

Decorate the cookies with coarse sugar and/or nonpareils. Bake, switching the position of the pans halfway through, until the cookies are just golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool 2 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
