Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Place the eggs into a saucepan with enough water to cover by 1 inch. Cover the saucepan, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, remove from the heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Pour out the hot water; cool the eggs under cold running water. Peel eggs, separate yolks from whites. Sieve or finely grate yolks. Reserve whites for another use.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the egg yolks and the almond extract. Slowly mix in the flour, just until incorporated. Use a spritz style cookie maker to press cookies onto prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven just until the edges begin to brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If desired, place a dab of jelly, a small chocolate morsel or 1/2 of a maraschino cherry in the center of the cookies before baking.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

I don't know how to edit this, but there are some corrections needed! 350 degrees for 8 min - NOT 400 degrees! You don't need parchment. If you have a nonstick pan, they'll stick well from the p...

I opted for orange extract instead of almond, and added zest of a full orange. It's still missing something. More sugar? Salt? I don't know, but for how buttery/yolk-y these are, I wouldn't make...

I agree 350 for 8 - 9 minutes. Parchment paper doesn't work out directly on pan. These are my son's favorite and I have been making them forever. I recently inherited my grandma-in-laws press an...

Five stars for taste but four stars for ease of preparing. The dough would not stick to the cookie sheet with or without parchment paper. I had to put the cookie sheets in the refrigerator and t...
