Super Shooter Whipped Shortbread Spritz Cookies

This recipe is reported to work well in the Proctor-Silex Super Shooter or Super Shooter Plus cookie press. It will also work with other cookie presses if the dough is refrigerated first. I lost my recipe book for the Super Shooter and found most spritz cookie recipes to be too stiff to work in my machine. I found this recipe through Google searches at www.christmas-cookies.com.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cream together butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt.
  3. Gradually add cornstarch and flour.
  4. Whip with an electric mixer until fluffy.
  5. Place dough into a cookie press and press cookies out onto a COOL baking sheet.
  6. Decorate with candies, or candied cherries if desired.
  7. Bake 12-15 minutes.
  8. Let cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet.
  9. Then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

When I was young, my mother always made lots of shortbread cookies and lots of spritz cookies from two different recipes. I have always done the same, out of tradition. The shortbread cookies were very time-consuming to roll out, and frequently very frustrating. This recipe is great! I can get the look of the spritz with the melt-in-your-mouth taste of the shortbread all in one...and without the frustration. I will never make both recipes again. Thank you!

These are my Christmas time favorites! My mom made this recipe and used orange extract and it was wonderful!! A really great recipe that is quick, and you can do multiple variations to create great cookie platters.

This is a very nice recipe to use with the SuperShooter. I had no problems at all getting it to go and I got tons of cookies out of the recipe. While I like the texture of the cookies a lot, they aren't quite sweet enough for our tastes. I'm not sure if adding more sugar would ruin the recipe or not, but I plan on trying it. Thanks!
