Swedish Spritz Cookies
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
This is a delicious, buttery cookie that is a holiday favorite on my cookie tray. It works well with my cookie press. I also made them into witches fingers for Halloween. I colored the dough green. I formed the finger shape by rolling a ball of dough to 5" in length and 1/2" thick. I made shallow knife cuts for lines and knuckles then dusted those with chocolate milk powder. I took sliced almonds-which I had dyed in red food coloring-(just shake the almonds gently with the dye in a sealed sandwich bag) and used those for fingernails. They took 10 minutes to bake.
This is the same recipe I got from someone back in 1968! Except it calls for 1 cup shortening instead of butter. Makes a great spritz dough. Very easy to work with in the cookie press.
Very easy. Delicious cookie. Easy to make.
depending on humidity... might want to lessen the flour or add more! Very tasty and held together well out of my antique cookie press.... very happy with this recipe!
