Spritz Cookies

Spritz Cookies – BEST, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth crumbliest Christmas Spritz cookies ever! Super easy recipe that anyone can bake this holiday season.

I’ve been baking quite a bit lately, thanks to my new KitchenAid 7-Quart Stand Mixer (enter to win here) that my friend at KithenAid sent me. This past weekend, I baked a batch of spritz cookies using my favorite cookie recipe, and they were gone in no time. (Spritz cookies are basically butter cookies made with a cookie press.)

These spritz cookies are beautiful, festive (with holiday-themed sprinkles), but more importantly, they are buttery, melt-in-your-mouth crumbly, and absolutely addictive. I got the original recipe from the packaging of a cookie cutter I bought in Malaysia and adapted the recipe to fit my taste. The recipe yields the BEST homemade cookies ever! To make the spritz cookies, I used a cookie press and chose the Christmas tree pattern.

  4. Opal says:

    Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    I’ll definitely have to try them, especially since they have a buttery flavor. It sounds like an excellent recipe for the Christmas holidays. I know my daughter would love to help me decorate them.

    Speaking of buttery things…
    I haven’t made butter cookies since I was a child. I was about nine years old. I discovered a Butter Cookie recipe in a book dated from the late 1800’s. The book was from my father’s book collection. Those cookies, turned out delicious and over the years I made them a lot. My father loved them.

  5. Dorothea says:

    You mentioned that you used a cookie press when you made the cookies, but the instructions are for rolling out the cookie dough…do you need to make any changes in the recipe in order to use a cookie press?

  6. Indu says:

    The sprinkles looks so dainty on the cookies!

  7. Very pretty! and definitely festive, she says as her tummy rumbles.

    Hi Bee,
    cou;d you please post the cup measurement for the flour and cornstarch-i guess all the dry ingredients please- I don’t have a weigh scale thanks

  9. mimi says:

    It looks so yummy!!! Have to try this! Is this similar to “danish” butter cookies?

  10. Amrita says:

    Issit possible to substitute the milk powder w more actual milk coz it’s quite dear just to buy a packet of milk powder just to use 3 tablespoon?! I don’t like to waste ingredients :( I live by you’d cookbook btw it’s given me so much confidence in asian cooking!!

  11. Willow says:

    Lovely! I will try these.

  12. Tracy Geh-Putnam says:

    I found this handy site with a conversion chart for ounces.
    Takes a little bit of math :)

  13. Yvonne says:

    Hi there

    Thanks again for the fabulous recipe.
    You mentioned milk powder, what sort of milk powder u used?


  14. Beautiful cookies….
    So festive, love them …

  15. Britanny says:

    Is it using confectioner’s sugar or regular castor sugar ? Thanks for sharing!

  16. Su-yin says:

    Oooh these look good! Will finally have time to bake this weekend, might try this as it looks yum! Reminds me of the Raya style cookies from home.

  17. Lydia says:

    Oh darn! I don’t have a scale :( I seriously need a bigger kitchen. If anyone have tried making these using cup measurements, please let me know how it turns out. Thanks!

  18. renee says:

    so cute, i want to try it too.

  19. in says:

    Just 2 quick questions. Can I use normal salted butter and omit the salt? Is corn starch the same as corn flour (butterfly brand)?

  20. Jan says:

    Hi, can i use a cookie cutter with this type of dough?

  21. jo says:

    Hi, are the sprinkles necessary? And can I halve the recipe? How many does 1 batch make?

  22. Mary says:

    I have been making spritz cookies since I was a young girl. This recipe is somewhat unique for a spritz. I can’t wait to give it a try. The shape of your cookies are so uniform. Could you please share the brand cookie press you use.

  23. lijokmai says:

    I need help.. how to convert oz or gram into cup. for example
    11 oz (310g)of flour– so many cups would be. Thanks

  24. Sp says:

    What should I do if I don’t have a cookie press? I really want to try this recipe but I don’t bake often so I don’t want to invest in a press now. Can I just roll the dough? Also will adding chocolate chips make it too sweet?

  25. janet says:

    How many spritz cookies does this recipe make?

  26. Latha says:

    yes indeed the best spritz cookies ever. had so much fun baking them y’day…

  27. Jenny says:

    Nice cookies. Can you tell me please why you use corn starch? Thank you

  28. Debra lim says:

    Hi. Can I check the temp. 350 degrees. Not too sure if my can do up to 350 coz is a microwave oven

  29. Hilda Diaz says:

    Hi! What should I do if I don’t have a cookie press? Can I just roll the dough?

  30. Vanessa says:

    I made these today and found them to be bland. As a former pastry chef, I found the dough and crumb to be quite nice, but lacked any flavor. I will try again subbing almond extract for the vanilla.

  31. Leslie says:

    I made the cookies tonight and I am sorry but they were not good at all way to dry, 4oz of corn starch equals 8 tablespoons, and I wasted 2 and half sticks of butter, I will not make these again, sorry but it they taste like noting but eating raw flour and corn starch

    • Hi Leslie, I used 4 oz of cornstarch not sure how many tablespoons. This recipe is super buttery and amazing in taste, it’s not cornstarch and flour taste. I think somewhere in your measurement you did it wrong. You have to use a scale.

      • Leslie says:

        I did use a scale and it comes out to 8 Tablespoons, I am just sorry to say, but my mother and father, 14 yr old daughter, husband all thought the same thing.

  32. Angelique says:

    How do you get your sprinkles to stay on the cookies.? Mine always fall off!

  33. Leena says:

    Please tell me what i can use instead of egg as I am allergic to eggs. Thanx! Waiting for your reply as I want to make them soon as I can, can’t wait!

  34. Hello i made these and the dough was sticky and wouldn’t come off the cookie press so I used a parchment bag and piped them on the parchment paper but they seem very bland and they didn’t rise at all please let e know what i can do to make them better
    Thanks Amanda

    • If the dough is sticky it means they are not mixed well. They shouldn’t be sticking to your hand when the dough is done and ready to be shaped. It sounds as thought the dough wasn’t ready.

    • Angelique says:

      You call them bland – I call them delicately flavored. They won’t rise though – that is how they retain the shapes made by the cookie press.

  35. Susan says:

    How many cookies does this recipe make?

  36. Susan P says:

    As several others have asked, approximately how many cookies does this recipe make? I did not see the answer anywhere. Thanks.
