Great Great recipe with some tweaking.... Here's what I did for perfect results. I added two more tablespoons to the butter it called for, and put half of the salt, half of the almond extract and a tad bit more of the vanilla... Perfecto... They are soft, creamy, melt in your mouth......

I agree with KARLA13, the preparation is easy but the cookie after-taste isn't that appealing. Although they looked nice, I couldn't give them out because of the after-taste. I make spriz cookies a lot and this taste was like no other...

YUMMY! AND FINALLY I've found a Spritz cookie recipe I will keep FOREVER!! :) I did modify the recipe, though, by using only 1/4t almond flavoring and 1/4 t vanilla flavoring. There was no bitter after-taste, only the melt-in-your-mouth taste of buttery spritz. The confectioner's sugar also makes this cookie very smooth. GREAT recipe! It's a definate keeper!

I made this recipe with three other Spritz recipes from this site. The texture was perfect for press cookies, but I found the almond flavoring overwhelming both in the dough and in teh finished product. I took them to work and to a church social and asked folks to rate them. These were the least favorite of the four Spritz recipes. I'm thinking maybe I should try them without the almond.

These turned out very tasty. However, the dough was too firm to go through my cookie press. After adding a little more butter, the consistency was right and the cookies turned out well.

it was easy, and I concur with the other reviews, "what aftertaste??" I did customize this recipe to make 6 1/2 dozen and needed to add 1/4 more butter to work the cookie press. Overall, a great recipe for the cookie press.

I tried this recipe because of the reviews. I have never had any luck making press cookies, but using this recipe was a breeze! Really has a good taste and very easy to use in the press. I give it five stars!
