Normally, spritz cookies are boring, dry, forgettable (but cute) little bites. This is the recipe that puts an end to all that. They're everything we love about butter cookies, on steroids!! I, too, did a double-take at a cookie recipe that uses yeast. But I'm so glad I tried it. They're absolutely WONDERFUL!! The yeast does unparalleled wonders to point up the buttery nature of these gems. I have found that they benefit from a couple of pinches of salt, particularly if you use unsalted butter, and a dash of extract. I have used vanilla, almond and coconut on various occasions, and even a mixture of those three, which gave an inscrutable, but delectable result. The texture is of a fine crumb: not dry, not crispy but tender and delicate. These actually taste as good as they look!
