This is a good recipe. I like to use 1 tsp of almond extract and also add 1 tsp of vanilla. it gives the cookies a great flavor.

This is an excellent recipe. They have such a great almond flavor. The only thing different that I did was to use a few drops of food coloring instead of the sugar. This one is definately going into my cookbook of favorite cookies.

Spritz are a tradition for my family and over the years we have tried various recipes. I have modify my recipe based on our favorite three. Instead of one egg, I use 3 egg yolks. And I use 1 1/4 c. powdered sugar. Bake at 375° for 5 minutes on parchment and let cool on the sheet. They turn out melt-in-your-mouth delicious!!!

Ok y'all I made these cookies and they're WONDERFUL... if you're getting dry spritz cookies it could be you're doing what I was... overbaking. Lots of recipes say to bake golden brown. with these cookies, don't do that. They were WONDERFUL... thanks caryn!!

wonderful cookies, caryn! this is the first successful recipe i've tried with my cookie press. i made some with slivered almonds on top, some with whole almonds, and even some with pineapple jam in the center after i pressed out the cookies. the taste is great - love the almond flavor, slightly crumbly, buttery. i baked them slightly longer, as i prefer crispy cookies. by the way, i did brushed them with egg yolk + milk mixture to obtain that 'golden' look. thanks again! edited to add: i posted a pic of the cookies, and i think i got approx 45 cookies.

I made these for cookie trays. I used 1/2 c. margarine and 1/2 c. butter. I liked the almond flavor in the cookies. To decorate these, I placed half of a candied cherry in the center of each flower. The color of the cherries livened up the trays a bit. I plan on using this recipe for spritz cookies from now on. Next time I think that I'll pipe little batons and dip an end in chocolate and chopped almonds. Thank you for posting this recipe!

This was my first attempt at spritz cookies and it was a success! I baked at the low end to keep my cookies from getting crunchy. I liked the dough better than the baked cookie, but I almost always love the dough more :) I bought anise to try next time.

This was my first time making spritz cookies and I was impressed by how easy and quick the process was! I used 1 tsp each almond and vanilla flavoring. Even the picky boyfriend liked them.

Delish! We all loved them, excellent flavor & easy to press. It made 2 tubes full in our "Super Shooter", 70 clover shaped cookies that we held the press for about 5 seconds each & they were about 1 inch around.

I love this recipe. The dough is easy to work with and makes tender, yummy cookies. I did 1 tsp almond and 1 tsp vanilla and baked for 6 minutes. This was the first time I used a cookie press and it was so easy and the results were delicious.
