Grandma Wendt's Almond Spritz Cookie Recipe

READY IN: 35mins




  • The directions for this recipe are for using the poinsettia shape disk.
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Mix butter and sugar.
  • Mix in remaining ingredients. This is the critical moment for this cookie; if it feels too tacky add 1/8-1/4 cup of additional flour.
  • Refrigerate for 10 minutes or so (I usually make a double batch, and refrigerate the first batch while I am mixing the second batch.).
  • Fill the press with dough and press onto ungreased cookie sheet. (I can usually put 24 on a large sheet; they don't spread much).
  • Sprinkle each cookie with colored sugar. (My Mom used to place a cinnamon dot into the center of each cookie, but I skip that).
  • Bake for 7 minutes; remove from pan to cool. (You may need to adjust this depending on your oven).
