Chocolate Spritz Cookies Ingredients

– 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
– ¾ cup granulated sugar
– 1 large egg
– 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
– ¼ teaspoon salt
– Optional: colorful sprinkles, chopped nuts, or dusting sugar for decoration


Chocolate Spritz Cookies Instructions

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. This process takes around 2-3 minutes, so be patient.
3. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined. The mixture will become creamy and smooth.
4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Gradually add this dry mixture to the creamed mixture, mixing well after each addition. Ensure the dough comes together without any dry patches.
5. Fill your cookie press with the chocolate dough, selecting your desired shape attachment. Press the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a small space between each cookie.
6. Optional: Decorate the cookies by adding colorful sprinkles, chopped nuts, or dusting sugar over the top.
7. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes until they are set but still tender. Avoid overbaking, as these cookies are meant to be delightfully soft in texture.
8. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


– For an extra indulgence, you can dip the cooled cookies halfway into melted chocolate and let them set.
– Experiment with different flavors by adding espresso powder or a pinch of cinnamon to the dough.
– If you don’t own a cookie press, try using a piping bag fitted with a decorative tip or shaping the dough into small, uniform balls and flattening them slightly with the bottom of a glass.
