Swedish Ground Almond Spritz Cookies
This recipe is very tasty, judging by the dough. However, I too found the dough too sticky and soft to press. Unaltered, this recipe may work best using a cookie press with a type of icing tip (instead of the design plates). To make this work with the cookie press design plates, I added 2 1/4 cups flour. This made the consistency perfect but really weakened the flavor. So, if adding more flour, you may want to also add a little more sugar, salt, and extract. I've found that working flour into the dough with my hands is the best way to judge the consistency of the dough. Once my hand comes clean easily, I've gotten a batter just stiff enough to keep shape. To get a finer almond grind, use a mortar and pestle.
