Quick Mix Spritz Cookies

Recipe by Tinkerbell
READY IN: 22mins


  • 2 14
    cups sifted flour
  • 34
    cup sugar
  • 12
    teaspoon salt
  • 14
    teaspoon baking powder
  • 1
    cup butter (refrigerator temp or only slightly softened, margarine or shortening can be subbed)
  • 1
  • 1
    teaspoon vanilla


  • Sift flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together in a bowl.
  • With a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles pie crust or biscuit mix (very fine lumps).
  • Crack an egg into a glass, liquid measuring cup. A large egg will measure 1/4 cup. If it doesn't, add water to reach the 1/4 cup line.
  • Add the egg, water (if needed) and the vanilla to the flour mixture and beat the mixture well.
  • Fill cookie press and form cookies on ungreased cookie sheets (aluminum preferred for best heat distribution).
  • Bake at 375°F for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are just set or very slightly browned. Check cookies at the 10 minute mark and bake 1-2 minutes longer, if needed.
  • Remove immediately to cooling racks.
