Weihnachtliches Spritzgebäck


  • 250g (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 200g (1 cup) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 500g (4 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Optional Decoration:

  • Chocolate glaze
  • Chopped nuts
  • Colored sugar
  • Sprinkles


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract to the butter-sugar mixture. Mix until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, you can add a little more flour.
  6. Fill a cookie press or piping bag fitted with a star tip with the cookie dough.
  7. Press or pipe the dough onto the prepared baking sheets in desired shapes (such as S-shaped or circles).
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Once the cookies are completely cooled, you can decorate them if desired. You can dip them in chocolate glaze, sprinkle chopped nuts or colored sugar, or add festive sprinkles.
  11. Allow any glaze or decorations to set before storing the cookies in an airtight container.

Enjoy your delicious Weihnachtliches Spritzgebäck! These festive cookies are perfect for sharing during the holiday season. Guten Appetit!
