Spritz Cookie Recipe Step 1 Step 2

Recipe ingredients:


  • 3 cups of flour (spelt)
  • 1.5 cups of almond meal
  • 3/4 cup of sugar (fine)
  • 2 eggs
  • 250g of softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence or 4 teaspoons of vanilla sugar


  • optional: baking chocolate to dip the baked and cooled down spritz cookies in

Kitchen utensils:

  • Bowl
  • Tray
  • Baking paper
  • Pastry bag
    Cookie press

Tip: The dough is best made and baked in one go so that the dough stays semi solid for easier use with the pastry bag or cookie press.

Step by step method:

Preheat the oven to 170C°. Convert! Line the oven tray with baking paper.

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together, three cups of flour and the one and a half cups of almond meal, the three quarter of a cup sugar and the two eggs as well as the two hundred and fifty grams of softened butter and the vanilla essence or vanilla sugar. Knead the mix until the dough smooth.
  2. Fill some of the dough into the pastry bag and form circles or any other shape you like directly onto your,baking tray, lined with baking paper. The dough is also suitable to use with cookie cutters, they give you more uniform design choices with all of the stencils that are available.

    Depending on the size of the tray and the size of the cookies you choose to make, the dough makes about three to four trays of cookies.
  3. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 170C° or until the edges show a golden brown colour, and the rest of the cookie still shows a rich yellowish colour.
  4. It is optional to heat chocolate in a water bath and dip one part of the cookie into the melted chocolate.

Before placing them in an airtight container let the spritz cookies cool down completely.
