Chocolate & Vanilla Spritz Recipe

These tender treats are so cute and have a great buttery flavor. The dough is easy to work with and the cookies bake up beautifully every time.—Mary Beth Jung, Hendersonville, North Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling YIELD:108 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • Melted chocolate and chocolate jimmies, optional

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, milk and extracts. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  • 2. Divide dough in half; add cocoa to one portion and mix well. Divide each portion into six pieces; shape each into a 5-in. log. Place a chocolate log and vanilla log together, pressing to form another log.
  • 3. Using a cookie press fitted with the disk of your choice, press dough 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • 4. If desired, dip each cookie halfway into melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; sprinkle with jimmies. Let stand until set. Yield: 9 dozen.

"I was so disappointed in this recipe..my daughter and I wanted to try some cookie recipes for Christmas, so we picked this one. The taste was bland and they were very dry."

"These are a very tender cookie. The only issue I have, it only made half as many as noted. It made 52, using the same disc, and following the recipe exactly. A very tasty cookie with the almond extrac in it. :-D Will make again."
