Chocolate-Dipped Spritz Recipe

Some of my sisters and I get together for a weekend during the holidays to do nothing but bake cookies. These cookies always make an appearance in the goody baskets that we give as gifts. —Nancy Ross, Alvordton, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling YIELD:36 servings

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 11 ounces dark, white or milk chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped

"I made these yesterday. I am doing A LOT of baking right now & these were easy to make & bake. By the end of the day yesterday it was nice to sit down and dip these cookies in chocolate & peppermint. I dipped candy canes in the left over melted chocolate and dipped them in sprinkles! I know these will be a BIG hit!"

"I make them, fill with seedless raspberry jam and then dip in chocolate and sprinkles. They are always in demand."

"My seventh grader made these cookies for a church cookie walk. He had a great time baking, dipping, and decorating them and felt a great sense of pride. We were late getting them there and the cookie walk was not well attended due to bad weather, but at church the next morning we found out that all 12 dozen had sold! We will make these again and again. We dipped half of the cookies in chocolate, half in white and sprinkled with pecans or assorted sprinkles. They were really beautiful and delicious."

"For many years I have made a "spritz" cookie similar to this, but dipped the chocolate in toasted sliced almonds. This is an excellent recipe and the candy makes a delightful change. It's a keep for my recipe box"
