Spritz Cookies
Serves: 48 cookies
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  5. Press cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheets at least an inch apart.
  6. Bake for 7-9 minutes, remove cookies form oven when edges or bottoms are just golden.
  7. Allow cookies to cool completely before moving or filling.
