This is one of the best Spritz recipe I've ever tried--superior! Just remember to use room temp eggs, & butter--only thing different I do is
bake about 14-15 minutes, till bottoms & edges are a very light golden color-so they are crispy. Store in tins @ room temp, keep couple weeks-but are usually gone long before that!!!!!!
12/21/14 UPDATE: I still think this recipe is the best out there. I get so many compliments on these spritz and have also made batches using 1tbs vanilla, 1tbs lemon with great results and for something different and unexpected. This dough is just the best to work with. I have made so many batches of these and they make a lot.* Perfection! I don't like a tremendous almond flavor so used just 1 tbsp of almond and 1/2 tbsp each caramel and vanilla. I love the fact that there is no baking soda or powder in this. The dough is absolutely wonderful to work with, and the finished product is sheer delight. Tender, tender, tender but keep their shape so nicely. Makes a nice sized batch, and slide right off the silpats. thank you so much for this easy but 5 star result recipe. make beautiful presentation due to the wonderful consistency of the dough.
I can't remember a Christmas without Spritz cookies and I'm 65. The recipe I used for so many years came from my Norwegian Grandmother.....This recipe is better. Perfect shape with every cookie and excellent taste.
I have been looking for "the" spritz cookie recipe for years-this is IT!! These remind me exactly of the ones I devoured as a kid. Baked up tender and crisp and worked perfectly in my press. I was a little intimidated by the 2 tablespoons of almond extract the recipe calls for and decided to use only one. I'm glad I did. It was plenty for me, but that is probably more of a personal preference. Can't fault the recipe for that!
The Perfect Spritz. I have been baking cookies for 55 years. I gave up on spritz years ago either because the consistency was poor or the flavor mediocre. I decided to try this recipe today and I will definitely be making these next year! Like others, I was hesitant about the 2T of almond extract so I only added 1T and 1t vanilla. Next time I will add the 2T of almond extract. Finally, a spritz equal to grandma's!
I have to agree with the other reviews. This recipe was a huge hit and completely exceeded my expectations! The batch produced a TON of cookie press cookies, which was great because people couldn't stop eating them! Very simple and tasty. One of my new go-to faves!
This is a very good cookie. I will make this one again. It makes a lot of cookies. Yummy and buttery!
BEST. Spritz. Cookie. Recipe. EVER. Didn't change a thing. After years of making spritz cookies and flip flopping between recipes I finally found a keeper. The dough is PERFECT to work with and tastes delish! This recipe really makes the best spritz cookie. Even after added food coloring, the consistency of the dough remains perfect. THANK YOU
