Cream Cheese Spritz
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch

I have that old cookie press with all the tips and the book and I still use it! I like this recipe but I have changed it a bit, using butter flavored shortening, and extra vanilla.
I thought it was a great recipe and I didn’t have any trouble using Tom with the cookie press. I think it was the cream cheese that made the difference.. I will definitely make these again..
Fantastic! Reminds me of my childhood. I noticed by the comments, people are having trouble with the cookie press. Before you give up, try this tip about cookie presses. It's in the mixing. Make sure you are incorporating the fats and sugars completely - then add your eggs (one at a time.) This prevents over mixing. Chill your dough too.You might also try using half butter, half shortening. Good luck!
Flavor was good, but this dough didn't work in my Wilton cookie press. I ended up rolling it into a log and slicing them. Very disappointing
I had no adjustments ,used a Wliton Ultra II cookie press, on coated cookie sheets. Loved them will definetly make again. Best spritz cookies I ever made. Jean, Kulpmont, PA
This is the second year I made these cookies and it is my"go to" spritz batter. Batter holds up to the last cookie. If it starts spreading and losing it's sharpness just put cookie press in fridge for 5 minutes. I did use green food coloring and used the floral disc and sprinkled with red colored sugar. Looked like poinsettias! Used the Christmas tree disc and sprinkled green sugar. Very pretty and festive looking.
I made a few changes, used almond flavouring instead of vanilla as I like that for Christmas. Also I chilled the dough for an hour or so before trying to put through the press. Not the best I've tried but taste ok.

First batch pressed out ok but couldn't get other batches to press out. I ended up rolling in ball and pressing with fork. Taste wasn't that good.
The dough was very dry and I had to add milk so it would go through the cookie press. It's back to my old recipe for me!
