How to Make the Perfect Butter Spritz Cookie

Related To:

Butter Spritz Cookies are quintessential buttery bites that come together in just 23 minutes. The only special equipment you'll need for these sprinkled shapes is a cookie press.

Pure vanilla extra and almond extract are key to the great flavor in these buttery cookies. Red and green sprinkles are featured for the Christmas holiday but you can pick your favorite colors and make these at any time of the year.

To get the best out of their six to eight minute bake time, observe the results (from left to right): parchment on a regular sheet pan for seven minutes, no parchment on a sheet pan for seven minutes, nonstick pan with no parchment for five minutes and a nonstick pan with no parchment for six minutes.

Let them rest on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.
