Lemon-Butter Spritz Cookies
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch
Makesabout 12 dozen
Excellent! I cut vanilla extract in half and added one tsp lemon extract and follow the rest of the recipe as written. They are awesome!
I made these today with 1 tablespoon dried lemon peel, but otherwise followed the recipe. They did work quite well in my cookie press, easily making 5 sheets of cookies. However, I found the cookies to have very little lemon flavor, they tasted too floury. My son doesn't mind, but I'll definitely be adding more lemon juice or extract next time around. I'll top them with a lemon frosting or glaze to correct this batch.
Followed recipe exactly but added more lemon as a review suggested. For me, I still think they were bland and too much flour taste...about 1 1/2 cups too much flour based on other recipes I've made which made them not taste so good. Not enough butter or lemon flavor either. Would not make again.
These cookies are delicious! Light lemon flavor, easy to bake, but hard to stop eating! They will be a staple in my cookie recipe box!
I made these spritz cookies according to the recipe and found this cookie lacks butter and/or lemon taste. The up side is that this recipe does make a lot of cookies and the dough works well in a cookie press.
This is in response to Water4Chocolate's question about a cookie press that is arthritis friendly. I have an electric cookie press called Super Shooter that I've had for many years. Do a Google search and I believe there are some on Etsy as well as Ebay. There are other electric ones at Amazon.
This is question not a review. Could anyone tell me what brand and where to purchase a cookie press that arthritis friendly (and affordable?) Thank you. ((This recipe is identical to mine from years ago except that mine uses cream cheese for butter).
These had fabulous flavor. Based on the reviews, I simply added just a touch more lemon juice, maybe 1 squeeze, and they had just the right amount of lemon flavor. Plus, I reduce the amount of sugar in everything- try it, you won't miss it!
Easy cookie to make and everyone loved them. I used 1 teaspoon lemon bakery emulsion (I found at cooking store) instead of lemon peel and they came out with a very nice lemon flavor. These are a keeper, will definitely make again.
