When I was little we always make spritz cookies for Christmas. I always wished we could have them for other occasions as well. I recently saw a couple of recipes for spritz cookies with a pumpkin flavor on Pinterest. I wanted to give them a try.
- 2 1/4 cups white all purpose flour
- 1/4 t. baking powder
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup shortening (butter or margarine), softened
- 1 t. vanilla extract
- 1 t. pumpkin pie spice
Chill this dough for about an hour. Take out a section of the dough and put it in a cookie press. The cookie pans should be room temperature or slightly chilled. Press out shapes of dough.
Bake at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Watch carefully as you don’t want the edges to get too brown.
Remove and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
They are yummy with a hot drink or as a light dessert. Check back over the next few weeks… I have lots of yummy fall recipes to share.
