“This is a Martha Stewart recipe. Martha describes them this way: "Delicate yet buttery rich, these spritzes are lavished with an immoderate amount of vanilla and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon sugar." These sound so good...I can't wait to try them! A cookie press is necessary for these cookies.”
60 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Have ready ungreased baking sheets.
  2. Whisk together the flour, salt and cinnamon. Using the tip of a paring knife, scrape vanilla seeds into a large bowl, and discard pods. Add sugar and beat with a mixer on medium speed for 3 minute. Ad butter and beat until pale and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Add flour mixture, and beat until just combined.
  3. Attach a wreath disk to a cookie press. Divide dough into 3 portions. Fill press with dough. Press cookies onto baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake until barely golden 9-12 minutes. Immediately sprinkle cookies with cinnamon sugar. Let cool slightly, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough. Cookies can be stored or up to 1 week.
