Does anyone have any good recipes for spritz cookies? Also any tips for working that press? Mine is a screw down type that springs back if you don't hold it tight.


Also, would love to hear about any good trifle recipes you might have.

Merry Christmas!

Spritz Cookie Recipes

Trifle is basically layers of cake (pound, angel food or lady fingers) fruit of your choice (cherry pie filling is good - my favorite), then vanilla pudding and whipped topping - or cream. Then repeat the layers. The cake may be sprinkled with sherry or rum to make it really festive. It is best made the day before or at least a few hours before serving to give the flavors a chance to blend together. (12/14/2005)

Spritz Cookie Recipes

Spritz Cookies

  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract
Stir together flour and baking powder. Beat butter for 30 seconds; add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and almond extract, beat well. Gradually add dry ingredients to beaten mixture, beating till well combined. Do not chill dough. Force dough through cookie press onto an ungreased cookie sheet, sprinkle with colored sugars, you can also add food dye to the dough mixture to make colored cookies. Bake at 400 degrees fro 7 to 8 minutes, makes about 60 cookies.

We use a Wilton cookie press, it locks down with each press so each cookie is perfect.
