Springtime Butterscotch Spritz Cookies

 We had some beautiful Springtime weather here in Texas, before it turned chilly over the weekend. The lady bunny was one that my late beloved Mom gave me, and the teapot was a gift from my sister. 

 Really and truly, I tried to resist this adorable bunny teacup from hopping into my hands at HomeGoods, but I got weak, and couldn't refuse!  I know, I know, I need another teacup like I need a hole in the head!!

 I followed Mary's instructions at Home Is Where The Boat Is and did the vase within a vase method of arranging flowers, putting the peeps on the inside of the outer vase.  Mary is a friend that always so willingly shares her tutorials with us, and has such amazing, inspiring ideas. 


 Cissy was able to come over and bake this past week, and she brought her cookie press that I gave her,  and we made Springtime Butterscotch Spritz cookies, from my friend Lynn's recipe, which can be found here.  Lynn always has something great cooking up in her kitchen and I always refer to her as The Queen of Spritz, and the Queen of Deviled Eggs.   Cissy and I tried a method of using a small funnel to sprinkle the colored sugar into the center of the glazed cookies.

I am leaving on a vacation with two of my high school girlfriends in a week, and won't be able to post or visit for awhile,   I'll be thinking of you!

Yield: We didn't count!

Butterscotch Spritz Cookies

These cookies have a delightful flavor!


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 serving size box of instant Butterscotch Pudding
  • 1/4 C brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 and 1/4 cup flour
  • powdered sugar glaze for brushing onto baked cookies
  • colored sugar for decoration


  1. Beat butter, vanilla, pudding, brown sugar and egg well.
  2. Mix in flour.
  3. Fill cookie press, form cookies on cool, ungreased cookie sheets.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees 10 minutes turning tray at 5 minutes or until lightly browned at edges.
  5. Allow to cool on baking sheet a minute, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Make a powdered sugar glaze by mixing powdered sugar and water until it's runny enough to spread onto cooled cookies.  While the icing is still wet, sprinkle the colored sugar into the cookies before the glaze dries and hardens.

I was able to go to my grandson, Caiden's tennis match, this past week.
