Buttery Spritz Cookies Recipe

These tender little cookies are very eye-catching on my Christmas cookie tray. The dough is easy to work with, so it's fun to make these into a variety of festive shapes. —Beverly Launius, Sandwich, Illinois

"These cookies are a new addition to my Christmas cookie assortment and they are my favorite this year, hands down. The dough worked perfectly with my Wilton cookie press and the glaze "glued" on the sprinkled sugars. The buttery taste is so good."

"Great recipe. I did not use the glaze. Instead I melted dark chocolate and spread on one cookie and made a sandwich with another cookie."

"This recipe was not at ALL easy to work with! Granted it was easy to mix... But after the first three cookies came out of my spritz canister the rest I had to hand roll and hand press! The taste of the dough was not to bad... Will go back to my old recipe!"

"Totally disappointing flavor. Back to my old recipe. They were easy to press out but boring."

"Tried these today. I've never made spritz cookies before and followed directions exactly. These turned out wonderful and went through the spritzer perfectly. For.Those who are complaining about the dough being too dry to go through the spritzer, I will bet you are using a liquid measuring cup to measure your flour. That does make a difference. Try using the correct measuring utensils and I believe you will find out that this is an excellent recipe. Thanks for this recipe !!"
