A month or so ago, Alicia called me and asked if I wanted the Cookie Gun she had found at Home Goods for a good price. (You might call it a Cookie Press.) She knew that I had broken mine and I didn't get to make any Spritz Cookies last Christmas! Ha Ha, how sad! I told her that I wanted it!
I had forgotten all about it when just a few weeks later, my husband and I went to visit her and her family in California!
Alicia handed me the Cookie Gun and I was surprised all over again! The great thing about Spritz cookies is that they look really cute without having to roll them out and use cutters. They are small and are a great filler on a cookie platter.
I usually think of Spritz Cookies as Christmas Cookies. But, since that is just silly, I knew that I could easily turn them into a Spring-time cookie and enjoy using my new Cookie Press right away, rather than waiting for Christmas!
Spritz Cookie Making Tips:
Before I put up the recipe, let me give you a few tips about Spritz Cookies:
I used only 2 different discs for these cookies, but you can see what looks like more variety of shapes depending on how much they were pressed.
Okay! Here is my recipe for a Spring-Time Spritz, adapted from the Cuisinart Recipe Booklet.
The results is a bite-sized buttery lemon cookie that you will eat way too many of! Have fun making and decorating!
