Spritz Cookies

Christmas was only last month, so I think it's fine to share this recipe for Spritz Cookies with you today. I usually make these during the Christmas season. But, they can be made and enjoyed throughout the year by changing the decorating sugar crystals.

These really are deliciously sweet, buttery cookies.

Here's the recipe I use. I adapted it from the Wilton Spritz Cookie recipe found on the Wilton Spritz Cookie Press box that I've had for years.

Spritz Cookies

1-1/2 cups butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 Tbsp. milk
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder

Preheat oven to 400°. Thoroughly cream butter and sugar. Add egg, milk, and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour and baking powder. Gradually add to creamed mixture, mixing to make a smooth dough. Do not chill. Place dough into cookie press and press cookies onto ungreased cookie sheet. Decorate with decorating sugar crystals as desired. Bake at 400° 6 to 8 minutes. Remove cookies from sheet. Cool on rack. Enjoy!

Makes 6 dozen cookies.
