Success with Spritz Cookies
Be sure your butter or cream cheese is softened before beginning.
Always press cookies onto a cool baking sheet.
Hold the cookie press so that it is upright and toughing the baking sheet. Force the dough through the press until you see it at the end of the rim of the cookie press. Lift the press straight up when the shape is formed.
If the dough is too soft and not making a sharp design, refrigerate briefly. If the dough is too stiff and won't move through the press, let the dough stand at room temperature briefly until it is the right consistency.
