I'd use the tangerines (and probably will- that's what I have too!) The zest is just the orange part of the rind- you can use a cheese grater to scrape it off. Be careful to not go into the white part of the rind- it's bitter.

The tangerines worked beautifully. 2 tangerines = about 1 teaspoon of zest, well, the way I zested them anyway.

The dough for the PB recipe I used tasted YUMMY, I only hope it has as much flvor and they are tender when I cook them. I will let you know.

Since spritz cookies are loaded with butter, you could roll the dough into a log, then refrigerate. When you want to bake, take it out, keep it cold, and do a slice and bake thing with it.

1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg yolk
1/3 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Subtract cinnamon and add any flavoring you like!


Preheat oven to 375 F. Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk, sour cream and vanilla. Sift together flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture. Fill cookie press with dough, then form cookies on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Note: Can also be made using a pastry bag using a large pastry tip.

Well, since I make a ton of sugar cookies, I do a different recipe for my spritz cookies.

I use this recipe:

Pebber-Nodder Cookies

They aren't as sweet as sugar cookies, but they are good. Rather than rolling and slicing as the recipe says, I just roll it and use my cookie press! Works great! My kids love them. I don't usually have cardamon, but I subsitute with cloves and nutmeg. It smells WONDERFUL!

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.

I'll have to try that. It sounds simple and delicious. thumbs_up.gif
Why is it that the first time you do research, it is re-search, rather than just search?

Hi, Monika,

Thanks for the feedback on that PB spritz cookie recipe. When I read it I thought - that's going to make a nice, light cookie.

Spice Spritz

2/3 cup sugar
1 cup butter -- softened
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

For Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Heat oven to 400F. In large mixer bowl combine sugar, butter, egg, salt, spices, and vanilla. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture is light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add flour. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed, 2 to 3 minutes. If dough is too soft, cover and refrigerate until firm enough to form cookies, 30 to 45 minutes. Place dough in cookie press. Form desired shapes 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

For Glaze, in small bowl stir together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle or pipe over warm cookies.

It is a light cookie, I generally think of PB cookies as heavy, but this recipe is not and if you don't overcook them, they stay slightly chewy in the middle...yum! Oh and they don't have an overpowering PB taste.

jeking, you mentioned using a pastry bag to form the cookies. Have you tried that? I can no longer use a cookie press due to hand problems, but have little trouble with a nice soft pastry bag.
Thanks!

I think if you use a pastry bag with a large tip on it, you can basically just pipe them onto the cookie sheet.
