Spritz Cookies Recipe

Now, here's one that's been around since grandma's were invented. This holiday season is punctuated with occasions calling for cookies, and these Spritz cookies suit the season perfectly. It's fun to bake holiday Spritz cookies for your special friends.

Spritz Candy Cane Cookies

Buttery, almond flavored Swedish Spritz cookies are probably the best known pressed cookies. Though they are often baked for the holidays, they are just as good at any other time of year. You can make Spritz cookies in a variety of fancy shapes, depending on which design plate you choose, and dress them up with candied fruit, colored sugar, silver Dragees, or other fun decorations.

Preheat your oven to 355 degrees F.

Spritz Cookie Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
(HINT: use butter, they sure taste better even if there are a few more calories. Holy Cow! You're eating a cookie, not a piece of celery. Forget the diet for once!)
3/4 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2 -1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Decorations (suggestions below)

Spritz Cookies Recipe Directions

In a large bowl and electric mixer, beat butter until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until nice and fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, and beat until smooth. Beat in the vanilla and almond extracts. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to the butter mixture, blending thoroughly.

Place dough in a cookie press fitted with a design plate, packing cookie dough in firmly and evenly. Force the spritz cookie dough onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing cookies about 1 inch apart. If your kitchen is very warm and your dough is soft and sticky, then refrigerate until firm enough to press easily. Decorate Spritz cookies as desired.

Bake cookies in a 355 degrees oven for 12 to 17 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Transfer to racks and let cool completely. Store Spritz cookies in airtight containers.

Spritz cookie recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Spritz Cookies Decorations:

Before baking, top cookies with halved candied cherries; or sprinkle with finely chopped nuts, colored sugar or chocolate sprinkles. Or brush baked cookies with this chocolate glaze; in top of a double boiler over simmering hot water, melt together 4 ounces of semisweet chocolate and 1/2 tsp. solid vegetable shortening. Apply with a pastry brush. Refrigerate glazed Spritz cookies for 10 minutes to harden chocolate glaze.

Grandma's Cookies and Tea

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.

However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.

She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!

Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
