Lemon-Cheese Spritz Cookies

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 7 mins

These are from the 1969 Betty Crocker Cookbook. Be sure that the dough is well-chilled. Sprinkle with colored sugars before baking. Pretty melt-in-your-mouth cookies and lots of lemon flavor. Don't omit the lemon zest! If you use self-rising flou, omit the baking powder. Watch carefully while baking - don't let them brown!


  1. Cream butter, cheese, and sugar until fluffy.
  2. Blend in remaining ingredients.
  3. Cover and chill.
  4. Press out cookies on un-greased baking sheet.
  5. Sprinkle with colored sugars.
  6. Bake at 375 F 7-8 minutes.

I remember baking these cookies in Home Ec. class. One of the best cookie recipe ever! I however, DO NOT sprinkle w/ sugar, rather make a light powdered sugar & milk glaze , or just plain.
