These classic Spritz Cookies are rich, buttery and a must-have cookie for Christmas. Rumor has it that they are Santa's favorite too.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside.
Use an electric mixer to beat the butter until smooth. Add the sugar and mix until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Reduce mixer speed to low then add in the egg, followed by the milk, vanilla.
Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Fill cookie press with dough. Press each cookie onto an aluminum baking sheet (not parchment paper and NOT non-stick). Add sprinkles before baking. Bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, or when the edges just barely begin to brown.
Cool 5 minutes and remove the cookies from the baking sheet.
