    This is, by far the best recipe for spritz ever! My Mother found it in the newspaper thirty years ago. It won a Christmas cookie award as the best cookie in the contest, and believe me it earned it!

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1 egg yolk, beaten
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1/4 cup finely ground blanched almond
    • 4 cups flour


    1. 1
      Cream butter and sugar, add egg yolk, almonds and extracts, beat again, until well blended. I like to beat for a few minutes at this point, . Blend the flour in gently a cup at a time, until the flour is completely incorporated. Be careful not to over mix, as this will toughen the cookies.
    2. 2
      Cool the dough slightly, if it is too warm, but don't chill for long, as the cookie dough will not cooperate with the press if it is too cold!
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 375, press out the cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet. I decorate with colored sugar or candied cherries which I cut into fourths.
    4. 4
      Bake for 7-9 mn. taking care not to brown them.

      Excellent recipe, beautiful cookies! I made them gluten free, using a mix of very fine yellow corn flour, white rice flour, potato starch and cornstarch with some xanthan added. As there is no good almond extract available here, I used amaretto liquor. Piping them after 30 minutes of chilling time worked like a charme - and they turned out as real melt in your mouths! Thanks for sharing :)

      I love making spritz cookies. I am lucky enough to have inherited my mom's original copper and aluminum Mirro cookie press. I cherish it and make several different spritz recipes every year. My favorite shape has always been the wreath with a maraschino cherry half in the center. Seven year old DD & I made cookies galore today, and she had fun pressing the dough and slicing the cherries for these. Made and enjoyed for Pammy's Cookathon in her honor. We'll miss you!

      5 stars for a great recipe. Easy to prepare and the cookies were a hit with my family. I made my cookies into a flower shape using the cookie press, sprinkled with sugar and added a 1/4 glace cherry to the centre. They turned out really pretty. My youngest daughter said that the cookies just melted in her mouth (really wish I could have one of these cookies- but I follow a gluten-free diet). Photo to be posted.
