I always wanted to make spritz cookies for Christmas. I had cookie press on my wish list for years. Some years I forgot about it. About two years ago finally I bought one, I spent a lot of money on it, but it turned out to be the most useless gadget ever invented by man. Long I waited for it… but disposal was swift. Then I tried making spritz cookies with a pastry bag, but I thought my hand will fall off.


Today I found this recipe on; and I thought I will give spritz cookies one more try. The search is over; I found the ideal spritz cookie recipe for using a pastry bag. Even I can handle it [my hands were never strong and they are worse now]. Making the spritzes was easy-peasy as a squeeze. With 224 day before Christmas, I am starting early. 

1 large egg yolk 
1 Tbsp heavy cream 
1 tsp vanilla 
1 cup unsalted butter, softened 
2/3 cup sugar 
1/4 tsp salt 
2 cups flour 

• Preheat oven to 375F. 
• In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter, sugar and salt at medium high speed until light, fluffy and pale in color. 
• Reduce speed and add the egg yolk cream and vanilla. 
• Beat until thoroughly combined. 
• Gradually add flour and mix until just combined. Do not over mix or the cookies will be tough. 
• Fill a large pastry bag with half of the dough and twist the top to close. 
• Pipe cookies on cookie sheet 2 inches apart. 
• Decorate with sprinkles if desired. 
• Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly golden brown. 
• Cool on baking racks and store in an airtight container
