Spritz Cookies – BEST, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth crumbliest Christmas Spritz cookies ever! Super easy recipe that anyone can bake this holiday season
10 oz (280g) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 egg yolk
3 oz powdered sugar + 1 heaping tablespoon sugar (100g)
1/4 teaspoon salt
11 oz (310g) all-purpose flour
4 oz (110g) cornstarch
3 tablespoons milk powder, optional
2 tablespoons full cream milk/whole milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fold in the all-purpose flour and corn starch. Mix until the dough becomes soft and not stick to hands.
Preheat the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silplat. Transfer the cookie dough into the cookie press with your desired pattern. Ratchet the dough out onto the baking sheets. Make sure to leave some space in between the cookies. Top the cookies with some sprinkles and place the baking sheets in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. This will firm up the dough so the cookies will maintain their shape when baked.
Bake for about 13-14 minutes, or until cookies are completely cooked through inside or turn slightly brown. Cool on rack.
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.
Everyone who has tasted these cookies can’t stop raving about them, some even told me to start selling these cookies! Try this spritz cookies recipe and I’m sure you’ll love them. Happy baking!
