  • Combine butter and sugar in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg yolks and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined. Beat in flour and baking powder. Use your hands to finish mixing if dough does not come together.

  • Add dough to a cookie press and press spritz-shaped cookies onto the prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are lightly browned, 9 to 11 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes. Carefully transfer to a wire rack and cook completely.

I was looking for a spritz recipe for Christmas and found this one. I am always hesitant to review a recipe that I modified but this is a really good basic recipe and I modify every recipe I use. I used butter flavored Crisco instead of butter.. I substituted powdered sugar for regular sugar when you do this you need to triple the amount (1.5 Cups). I also had to add 1 TBS milk to make the dough super soft to mush through the cookie press. The end result was a light buttery cookie. I dipped some in chocolate for some added holiday cheer. Very good basic recipe. Read More

There is something wrong with the time and temp. Baked at 400 for 10 mins gave us the dark almost burnt bottoms. Changed to 350 for 8 mins gave us great cookies. Read More
