The best spritz cookie recipe, perfect to double, and bake for all holidays!

Author Farmhouse Made


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 whole egg beaten
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp vanilla bean paste adjust to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.

    Place cookie sheets in freezer.

    In medium bowl, sift together flour and baking powder. Set aside.

    In stand-mixer bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy (about 2 minutes).

    Add the egg, milk, vanilla, vanilla bean paste and mix again until fully combined (about 2 minutes). 

    Add the flour mixture, and mix well. Take out your cookie sheets from the freezer.

    Fill your cookie press, add the desired disc, press your cookies (1-2 clicks per cookie) close together, then decorate.

    Bake the cookies about 8 minutes, rotating your trays halfway through the baking time (4 minutes). Let the cookies sit on the tray for a minute or two, then transfer them to a cooling rack. 

Recipe Notes

If you choose to double this recipe:

  • Continue with 1 egg (do not use 2)
  •  Adjust your vanilla bean paste to 1 1/2 Tablespoons, unless you like that kind of thing. 

Wash your cookie sheet, and re-cool in the freezer between each batch for easier pressing.
