spritz cookies

I hope posting this on Friday the 13th doesn’t make these cookies unlucky! They are just your classic, buttery spritz cookies. I finally gave my cookie press a try and am SO pleased with the results! They smell, taste and look just like the little shortbread cookies in the round tins. So Christmassy and cute!

Healthy, these are not. But so festive!

Spritz Cookies

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/8 cup granulated sugar*
1/8 cup Monk Fruit in the Raw Sweetener*
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cups cake flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt

Cream together the butter and the sugar.

Add the egg and vanilla. Mix until well blended.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually sift into the butter mixture and stir well.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F, and place the dough in the fridge to chill until the oven is ready.

Using a cookie press, press out cookies onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-11 minutes.

*Or just use 1/4 + 1/8 cup granulated sugar!
