Peanut Butter Spritz Cookies Recipe

I recently purchased my first cookie press because I love baking many different types of cookies for the holidays. I started with a classic spritz cookie and then began experimenting. I made a cinnamon spritz cookie, which my family raved about. Because my family also loves peanut butter blossoms, I decided to try a peanut butter spritz cookie too, and the results turned out deliciously wonderful.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of whole milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 3 1/2 cups of flour
  • food coloring (optional)
  • miniature chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Cream together the butter, peanut butter, and sugar until fluffy.
  3. Add the egg, whole milk, vanilla extract, and optional food coloring 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 8 to 12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
  10. Immediately press a chocolate chip into the center of the cookie.
  11. Allow the cookies to cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheet.
  12. Allow the cookies to cool thoroughly.
  13. Store the peanut butter spritz cookies in an airtight container.
