Pumpkin Spice Spritz Cookies and Fun Decorating Idea

Tis the season for all things pumpkin spice and these Pumpkin Spice Spritz Cookies are the latest fall treat I've made. We enjoyed the subtle hint of spices and thought the pumpkin shapes turned out cute:@) Side note for anyone that may have a horror story about Spritz not sticking... Not one of my stems stuck to the baking sheet... not one.  So I just gently picked them off the press and stuck them onto the cookie. I think the Wilton leaf sprinkles can still be found at Walmart and the craft stores this year.

The fun decorating idea: If you've ever tried to add sprinkles and decorations to Spritz I'm sure you know they bounce everywhere. 
I decided to try mixing them into the batter like I do with Pizzelles. It really worked well!
I kinda like the Vertigo effect the swirled plate makes... Good for Halloween:@)

These crunchy cookies are perfect with a nice cup of coffee, tea, hot cider or cocoa.

Pumpkin Spice Spritz Cookies
1 C Sugar
1 C butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp pumpkin spice
3 C A/P flour
Colored sugar, sprinkles, etc for decorating-optional
  1. Cream sugar and butter.
  2. Add egg, salt and spice, mix well.
  3. Add flour, mix until it just comes together. If it seems dry mix it with your hands, it will come together nicely.
  4. Fill press and squeeze cookies onto cool, ungreased, not non-stick cookie sheets.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown at edges.
  6. Cool on sheet for a couple minutes then move cookies onto cooling rack.
Have a happy day:@)

  4. I love spritz but never think of them until Christmas- these pumpkin spice ones sound good. I especially love the idea of mixing in the sprinkles. I don't have a pumpkin in my set- I'll have to look around for one of those. :)

  6. The spicy spritz sounds like a yummy treat, Lynn. Yes, I have that same problem with the press, and it's frustrating when parts don't stick. Your pumpkins look so cute and I think the addition of the leaves makes them extra special. Great idea of mixing the sprinkles into the dough. I can clean up sprinkles for days when the grands do the decorating!!
