Spritz are a Christmas staple in my family. We have tried lots of different recipes and this is a modified recipe from our top 3 favorites.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Mix dry ingredients and set aside.
  3. Cream butter, mix in powdered sugar.
  4. Add egg yolks, vanilla, and almond extract.
  5. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a cookie press and decorate with colored sugar. Bake for 5 minutes and allow to cool for 2-3 on the sheet before transferring to wax paper or wire rack. I usually use two baking sheets so the one I am using isn't too warm or it will start to melt the dough and you'll have trouble with the press.
