1 cup unsalted butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp molasses

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/2 tsp salt


In a mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add in the egg, vanilla extract, and molasses and continue to beat on high.

Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl.

With the mixer on low add in the flour, spices, and salt.

Beat for one minute.

If you’re making different colors, divide the dough and place it in different bowls.

Add a few drops of coloring to each bowl and stir with a spoon until combined.

Next, add the dough into the cookie press and follow the directions listed on the cookie press directions.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and then press the cookies on the lined baking sheet 2″ apart.

Bake in a 375-degree oven for 6 minutes.

Let them cool and then devour!


Use pumpkin pie spice instead of gingerbread spice and leave out the molasses for a pumpkin spice spritz cookie.
