Charlie Brown Spritz Cookies

I can’t even begin to describe to you how happy these little Charlie Brown and Snoopy Spritz Cookies make me! I love anything Peanuts related and combining my love of baking with the cutest characters resulted in such an adorable and delicious recipe.


I used my classic Spritz Cookie recipe for these Charlie Brown-themed cookies and they are so soft, tender, and buttery in flavor. These cookies will melt in your mouth and are the perfect treat for this Holiday season.

How To Get White Cookie Dough

I use White Food Dye to get my Snoopy color and hat color just right. I will always recommend using Americolor Gel Food Dye for all of your food dyeing needs! These colors turn out so vibrant and just a bit of food dye goes a long way. You can find the white food dye I use on Amazon, click here!

How To Pipe Spritz Cookies

Piping cookie dough can seem hard and it’s certainly a bit more straining than piping a loose icing or a soft buttercream. I recommend filling your piping bag a little bit at a time. If your bag is full of cookie dough and you are trying to squeeze all of the dough out from the top your hand will cramp and you won’t have much control over the cookie dough.

Depending on the piping bag you’re using, you may want to double bag it so that way your piping tip does not squeeze out or your bag does not burst.

You can absolutely use a cookie press with this recipe. I love piping spritz cookies for a more customizable design but this recipe works perfectly with a cookie press. If you are using a cookie press, the process is the same when preparing the dough, the only difference is that your dough will not be placed into piping bags and piped individually.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups + 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar

  • 3 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 2 egg yolks, room temperature

  • Food dye

  • 3 Tbsp. semi-sweet chocolate (for decorating)

Directions

  • Find the charlie brown images you’d like to replicate online then trace the faces/ designs onto parchment paper with an edible marker. Line these pieces of parchment paper onto two cookie sheets then set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and the sugar just until light and creamy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as you mix. Add the egg yolks and vanilla to the butter mixture.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure that everything is being combined evenly. One at a time, place a few scoops of dough in separate smaller bowls to dye different colors for our designs.
  • Place your colored dough into piping bags fit with large and small star tips.
  • Use the video and pictures above to help guide you while decorating. The dough is thick and will be a bit tough to pipe, take your time and pipe slowly to keep your hand from cramping. Use thick piping bags or double bag your piping bags to keep them from bursting from the pressure of piping.
  • Once your cookies are all piped, place the tray in the fridge to chill while we preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let the cookies sit on the cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes after baking then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • To make the facial features, microwave the chocolate in 30-second intervals mixing between each time then place the melted chocolate in a piping bag.
  • Pipe the melted chocolate onto Snoopy and Charlie Brown’s faces.
  • Enjoy!
  • Storing Holiday Spritz Cookies
  • These cookies can sit out at room temperature for a day and then can be stored sealed in the fridge for up to 10 days. They can also be stored sealed in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  1. Hi! Is there anyway you can share the images you used to trace Charlie and snoopy? I can’t seem to find anything remotely close!

    1. Hi there! I don’t remember exactly which images I used but I googled “snoopy christmas png” or “charlie brown christmas png”. These type of images are great for simple designs needed to trace or replicate.
