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.

  • Cookie Spritz or Cookie Press


  • 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.
