Fruit-Filled Spritz Cookies
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 15 min./batch
Makesabout 7-1/2 dozen
I don’t have a cookie press with a bar disk. Is there another way to shape them?
wonderful recipe! time consuming; but well worth the effort. Kayesandra, please read the recipe! It says clearly: one cup of cherries, chopped.
I've been using this recipe every Christmas season since my sister gave it to me a number of years ago. They were a hit at a church function again this year.
These cookies are fabulous! I thought I'd previously reviewed this recipe, but saw that I hadn't. I've been making these cookies since the recipe first appeared in Country Woman magazine in 2001. More of a pastry than a cookie, they are a delightul blend of delicate cookie crust wrapped around a tasty and unusual filling. The compliments I always get on them are well worth the effort!
I made a half batch of these cookies to see if I they were any good and they got rave reviews. I doubled the recipe for a family cookie exchange last night-- I need a lot and they yield 7 1/2 dozen but that's not the reason I chose them, I chose them because they really are quite unique and definitely one of the best cookies I've ever tasted. It is a time consuming cookie but so worth the effort. I chopped my dates very fine as well as the cherries and I used cashews as my nut since it's what I had around the house. A definite crowd pleaser!
Question...I want to try this recipe but, Is that 1 cup of chopped Maraschino Cherries OR 1 cup of Maraschino Cherries, chopped. There is a difference.
I made these the past 2 years for Christmas . They are super easy & taste great ,everyone loves them that has tried them .
