One of the gifts that my wonderful husband gave me for our last anniversary was an awesome cookie press and I could hardly wait till I could use for making spritz cookies.  Before you say, “he gave you what??!!” It was perfect and he also gave me flowers, got me my favorite Chic-fil-a breakfast burrito and a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks.  Yes, I’ll keep him around!!  Back to the cookie press – I decided to make these festive spritz cookie wreaths and they were quite yummy.  Just a warning though, if you use the little red hot candies, as I did, be sure to tell your cookie eaters what they are or they will be thinking little red M&M’s and bite down and realize that it is HARD! Don’t want you to be responsible for someone’s dental bill!  On to the recipe.


1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
Green liquid food coloring
Red Hots candies, edible confetti or mini red M&M’s, to decorate


Heat oven to 350 degrees F.


In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg and salt until fluffy, 3 minutes. On low speed, beat in flour until smooth. Tint dough pale green with food coloring.

Spoon dough into a cookie press fitted with a standard wreath disc, following manufacturer’s directions. 


Press out wreaths onto large baking sheets, spacing cookies about 3/4 inch apart. Before baking, press in candy “berries” or confetti.

Bake cookies at 350 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly puffed and set. Transfer cookies directly to wire racks to cool.

  1. I used to make wreath cookies all the time. My dad gave me a cookie press when I was in junior high, which I still have, but I’d lost the recipe over the years. SO glad to have this one so that I can make my cookies again!!
