I got mine from the recipes section of the Wilton website. They are quite tasty. I think there is six different varieties.

This is my mom's recipe. The only one I have ever used.

1 pound butter (no substitutions!)
1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
6 egg yolks
5 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. almond extract

Cream all ingredients with electric mixer until thoroughly combined. Press dough through a cookie press onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 325 F for approximately 8 minutes. Dough can be colored very easily.

HTH! icon_smile.gif

Thanks! Actually, Wilton has 20! Very cool!

Edited to say, oops, I'm wrong. That is all of their recipes, not all of the spritz recipes. But thanks again!

The only one of the Wilton spritz cookie recipes I did not like was the peanut butter spritz. They just did not turn out right for me, tasted like rancid nuts. The peanut butter was brand new, fresh -- I don't know. Let me know if you try them, and how they turn out.

Hi there! This IS my most popular holiday cookie that I make...

1 cup(1/2lb) unsalted butter, room temp.
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups flour

Combine butter and sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla and salt. Stir in flour until well mixed.
Pack dough into cookie press. Press onto ungreased baking sheets spaced an inch apartfrom one another.
Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

I like to color half my dough red and then combine the two, red and 'white', doughs in the cookie press. I use the poinsetta/flower design. Then, as soon as I take the cookies out of the oven, I drop them each separately into a mixture of powdered candy canes, that I've ran through my quisinart, and powdered sugar. Then place them onto a rack to cool. They are ADDICTIVE!

This is my grandma's recipe:

2C. margarine
2C. sugar
4 egg yolks
5C. flour
1t. vanilla

Cream margarine, gradually add sugar. Add egg yolks one at a time, stir in vanilla, then flour a small amount at a time, mix well. Bake at 400 for about 10 minutes or until edges are golden. Remove from cookie sheet as soon as they come out of the oven. If you allow to cool they will break when you go to take them off.

I really like this one from allrecipes.com: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Butter-Snow-Flakes/Detail.aspx

It has cream cheese, cinnamon, and orange zest in it, and my kids and hubby love these cookies!

I use the same exact one as peasacake and it is awesome! I love these cookies but can't make them this year because I cannot find my cookie press. icon_sad.gif

I'm glad you said something about the PB ones, I was going to try them! But I found abnother recipe for those, so I'll compare the ingredients first.

Thanks, everyone!

I use the one that came with my cookie press and I can't tell you what it is because it's at home and I'm at work icon_sad.gif However, I did notice that the recipe works better with real butter. I tried it with margarine because I didn't have butter at the time and it was too "soft" and kept sticking to my cookie press. If I use real butter it works MUCH better! Just my 2 cents (for what it's worth...probably not 2 cents icon_biggrin.gif )

I have 4 pounds of butter in the fridge waiting to be made into some type of delectable festive dessert....Thanks for the tip! I try to only use butter for Christmas baking, as if I wasn't broke enough, right???
