Betty Crocker Classic Spritz Cookies

Sharing is caring!

Buttery, crisp and delicious. It is hard to go wrong with the classic Spritz Cookie, recipe courtesy of Betty Crocker.

The original recipe notes that you can use either almond or vanilla for flavoring, but we only use vanilla, as the almond can be overpowering.

Decorate with cherries, colored sugar and the like. We also decorated with Very Very Strawberry Flavored Sugar from King Arthur Flour which tasted fantastic. So festive and pretty. Enjoy!
