Cinnamon Spritz Cookies Recipe

Last week my new cookie press arrived, and I made my first batch of classic spritz cookies. I love the buttery flavor of the classic version but wanted to try some variations. Cinnamon is a flavor that I associate with the holiday season, so I removed the almond extract of the classic recipe and added cinnamon. My family absolutely loves my new cinnamon spritz cookies! My son even told me to make sure that I save the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of unsalted butter (3 sticks)
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of whole milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 3 1/2 cups of flour

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  3. Add the egg, whole milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon to the butter mixture.
  4. Stir together the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl.
  5. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients. Combine until the dough cleans the side of the bowl.
  6. Fill a cookie press with the dough.
  7. Press the cookie dough onto a chilled baking sheet.
  8. Chill the unbaked cookies in the freezer for 10 minutes before baking.
  9. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
  10. Allow the cookies to cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheet.
  11. Allow the cookies to cool thoroughly.
  12. Store the cinnamon spritz cookies in an airtight container.
