Course: Cookie Press CookiesDifficulty: Medium



Quick, easy and pretty…buttery and melt-in-your-mouth. Perfect texture for working with your cookie press!


  • 1 pound butter

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • pinch salt

  • 1/2 cup cornstarch

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream together butter, icing sugar, vanilla and salt. Gradually add cornstarch and flour. Whip with an electric mixer until fluffy. Place into a cookie press and press out cookies on cool baking sheet. Decorate with candied cherries or dragees if desired (not pictured). Bake 12-15 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet, then remove to wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.


  • Dress these up by pressing a half a candied cherry in the middle, or decorate with colored sugars or sprinkles.

I've been making Spritz cookies since I baked with my German Mom over 50 years ago! When I switched to THIS recipe, my family began commenting on how good my Spritz cookies had become! Best I've ever tasted, and they melt in your mouth.

These are light and delicious. Every time I make these my family and friends are impressed. They have no idea how simple it is. I put a drop of raspberry preserves in the center before baking. Make a great cookie.
