How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt butter in 2-quart heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, 6-8 minutes or until butter turns a deep, rich brown color. (Watch closely.) Immediately pour into metal bowl. Cover; refrigerate until butter is cool to touch and slightly solid.

    Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in bowl.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F. 

  4. STEP 4

    Spoon butter into bowl; add sugar. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until well mixed. Add flour mixture and milk to butter mixture; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  5. STEP 5

    Fit cookie press with desired template; fill with cookie dough. Press dough into desired shapes onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with decorator sugars, if desired. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.

Tip #1

Add additional milk, 1 tablespoonful at a time, if dough is too dry and crumbly.

This recipe is wonderful. I have made these cookies five years running and everyone always loves them. The browned butter adds a deeper butter flavor and an almost nutty flavor. They are wonderful and a step above ordinary Spritz cookies.

Browning the butter at different degrees of browness changes the flavor each batch a different flavor!
