In a large bowl, beat with an electric mixer butter, cream cheese, sugar and salt until light and fluffy, for about 5 minutes. Beat in vanilla extract (or any other flavoring that you like). Add the flour and cornstarch and stir together until just barely combined. If needed, use your hand to bring the dough together.
If you want to tint part of the cookies dough this is the time to do it. Divide the dough, add 1-2 drop of gel food coloring; stir until well combined.
Make Ahead: You can refrigerate the cookie dough for up to 4 days before pressing the dough through the cookie press. If the cookie dough is too firm to press let it sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to soften.
Store: Cookies stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Freeze: You can also freeze the cookie dough for up to 3 months. To use frozen dough, allow to thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then bring to room temperature before continuing with step 4. Baked cookies freeze well for up to 3 months; thaw before serving.
What is a cookie press?
A cookie press is a kitchen tool used to press cookies such as spritz. It consists of a cylinder with a plunger on one end, which is used to force out cookie dough through the metal plate, at the other end, to create beautifully shaped cookies.
Can I make Spritz cookies without a cookie press?
Yes!! Instead, place the dough in a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch (13 mm) open star tip.
