Strawberry Valentine Spritz Cookies

Looking for a fun treat to make to show your loved ones how much you care this Valentine’s Day? These strawberry Valentine Spritz Cookies are absolutely delicious. And you won’t believe how easy these decorative little cookies are to make!

Spritz cookies are not just for the Christmas. I use my cookie press year round for holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions.  Using a cookie press is a great way to make a ton of cookies in a short amount of time.

I used to have an antique cookie press that was my grandmother’s, but it was destroyed when a pipe burst and our house flooded.  Since then, I’ve had a variety of cookie presses.  However, I haven’t been really pleased with any of them until I purchased my Oxo cookie press.

Unlike other cookie presses, the disks for the Oxo cookie press are metal, just like the ones from my grandma’s press.  Plus I love that it has a non-slip base so that the cookie press won’t slip while you are in the middle of extruding your cookies.   I had no problem using my favorite spritz butter cookie recipe with my new cookie press.

What I love about the Oxo cookie press is that you can purchase seasonal disk sets in addition to the 12 it comes with.  When I saw this cute Springtime cookie press disk set, I knew I had to have it.

I just love the double heart and the love disks.  They are just perfect for making Valentine spritz cookies.

To make these Valentine spritz cookies, I used the Love, rose, heart, and the double heart cookie dies found in the OXO Good Grips Cookie Press Springtime Disk Set.

      I didn’t either until I saw a cookie recipe post that used them over at Happier Than a Pig in Mud. Oxo also makes a winter set that has the cutest snowman! So of course I had to get a new cookie press and all the disk sets 🙂
