These gluten-free chocolate spritz cookies are a delicious treat that’s easy to make with a cookie press. They’re the perfect healthy holiday dessert!
These chocolate spritz cookies are a delicious treat. They’re soft and not too sweet – just how I love my cookies.
I’m happy to be partnering with OXO to share this spritz cookie recipe. OXO is one of my favorite brands when it comes to small kitchen gadgets. Their quality is always great in my experience, and all their products come with a lifetime warranty.
Chocolate Spritz Cookie Tips
I had never worked with a cookie press before, but the OXO cookie press was very easy to operate. It comes with 12 stainless steel disks to make all sorts of cookie shapes. This press will get a lot of use around here during the holidays. My kids are already dreaming up different flavor combinations to go with the various shapes.
These chocolate spritz cookies are delicious on their own, but for an extra treat you could make them into sandwich cookies. Fill them with my clean eating chocolate raspberry frosting, or else use your favorite jam.
This recipe yields 3 dozen cookies, but they’re small. If you’re baking for a crowd, you’ll want to double the recipe.
Chocolate Spritz Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 1/3 cups gluten-free flour
- 3 tbs cocoa powder
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Cream the butter in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the maple syrup and salt, and mix them with the butter. Then add the egg and vanilla, and mix to combine.
- Sift the cocoa powder and flour together into a small bowl. Gradually add them to the mixing bowl with the butter mixture. Mix until all the dry ingredients are incorporated into the wet ingredients.
- Transfer the dough to the cookie press. Press the dough onto ungreased cookie sheets. If the dough doesn’t come out of after the first press, give it a second press. If the dough is a little messy coming out of the press, you can gently press down on each cookie with your finger to even things out.
- Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, or until set. Cool on a wire rack, and store in an airtight container.
