These were light and crispy and worked very well in my cookie press. For those who think 3 cups of flour sounds like a lot, remember this recipe uses CAKE flour -- so you'll need the full 3 cups. If you use all purpose, you could get by with less flour.


If you're looking for the best Spritz cookie recipe, go with this one! I was making Christmas Spritz for the 1st time and wanted them to be fabulous. I literally looked at EVERY Spritz recipe on this site - sidebyside- with a notepad. I then made 3 different recipes that each varied by a significant ingredient or two. I brought the cookies around to kids and neighbors & had them 'vote. Without doubt these were the best!! They are light and delicious, DEF with the BEST flavor! They're like Danish cookies, but BETTER. (I used 1 c sugar and vanilla instead of almond. You can also tweak the butter and temperature to what works best for you.) This is the Spritz to go with!!!! Enjoy

When we make these cookies I split the dough into 3rds and color 2 of them. One green and the other red. Then when I fill the cookie press I put a little green dough in a little of the plain dough in a little of the red dough in. Makes them more festive for Christmas. They mix as you press them out but it doesn't make them look like a red/green mess. Pretty cool the way they turn out.
