The best part of spritz cookies are the sprinkles, so why not put them inside the dough? These fun spritz cookies show that you can bring your cookie press out all times of the year, not just for Christmas cookies!
1 cup unsalted butter (two sticks), room temperature
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and almond extract and beat until just combined. Add flour, salt, and baking powder and mix until the dough has just come together and is moistened. Slowly, with mixer on, pour sprinkles into batter so they distribute evenly.
Add dough to your cookie press and press dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes, or until edges are sightly golden brown. Cool on pan for a few minutes and then remove cookies and place on a wire rack.
*If you don’t have a cookie press, roll dough into a log and slice and bake. This dough can also be frozen.
