Fall Flower Spritz Cookies
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes
Servings: 115 cookies
With the help of M&M candy and a cookie press, these spritz cookies look very much like a fall flower arrangement when piled high onto a serving plate.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup confectioner's sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 8 ounces M&M candy
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet by lining it with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the butter and the sugar until well combined - about 2 minutes.
Add the egg and the vanilla extract. Beat into the butter and sugar mixture until completely incorporated.
Sift together the flour, and baking powder. Add to the butter mixture and beat until just combined.
Load the cookie dough into a cookie press which has been fitted with the disc of your choosing.
Press the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving 1 inch of space between each cookie.
Top the middle of each pressed cookie with one M&M candy. Press the candy just slightly into the dough.
Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and allow the cookies to cool slightly on the baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.
