Enjoy a little something sweet!
When the days get crisp and the leaves start to fall, there’s nothing more cozy than snuggling up with a good book, a mug of something hot and a plate of sweet treats. This autumn, our plates will be full of Fabiana’s delicious pumpkin spice spritz cookies.
What You’ll Need:
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
natural orange food color (optional)
Sprinkles for garnish
spritz cookie press fitted with a pumpkin-shape template
What You’ll Do
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and mix on medium-low until well combined and airy, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Add the vanilla and the egg; mix to incorporate.
If desired, add a few drops of natural food color and mix until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice.
With the electric mixer on low, add flour mixture slowly to the butter mixture. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
Fill the Cookie Press with cookie dough.
Press the cookies onto ungreased baking sheets.
Decorate cookies with seasonal sprinkles.
Bake until firm and golden, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Remove cookies from oven and let set for 2 minutes.
Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
