Spritz Cookies Recipe
These simple and delicious spritz cookies have been our favorites for very long time. Haven’t bake these for a while though, so long, that my crew started complaining. Yes, the simplest is always the best and we all love simple cookies, especially these buttery spritz cookies.
I don’t know why people bake spritz cookies mostly during Christmas time, for us these are just like regular sweets that I’d bake anytime, to enjoy with my coffee or tea, as for kids, they’d eat these at no time.

3 ½ Cup all purpose flour
1 Tsp baking powder
¼ Tsp salt
1 ½ Cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
1 Cup granulated white sugar
1 Egg (room temperature)
1 Tsp vanilla extract
½ Tsp almond extract (optional)
2 Tsp orange zest
Food coloring (I use yellow for orange or lemon flavored cookies, also these spritz cookies can be made as chocolate flavored by adding 2 Tbs cocoa powder)
Preheat oven to 350° F/177C
Sift together flour,baking powder and salt, set aside
In a mixing bowl beat butter for 2 minutes then add sugar and beat until it’s light and fluffy
Add egg,vanilla extract, almond extract and orange zest (food coloring if desired)
Gradually add flour mixture,scrape the bowl when needed
Use your cookie press to make the shapes ,1 to 2 inches apart
Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned
You can top these cookies with sprinkles or dust with sugar,make sure to brush with egg wash to make sure the sprinkles stick well
For egg wash use 1 egg white+2tsp water
