I tried Crumb Boss' Italian Butter Spritz Cookies. These tasted exactly like the cookies I would get at the Italian bakery. I think the "secret" ingredient is almond paste. Everyone who has tried them has loved them.

Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

You are very welcome SugarSweetCafe icon_biggrin.gif ! Just make sure to follow her mixing ingredients. I may have to make them over the weekend now since just looking at the recipe causes me to really, really want them--and I have to bring dessert anyways... If you have any questions, just PM me and I will help as much as I can.

I have made the Crumb Boss Italian Cookies and they are just like the italian bakery! I moved to PA from NY and boy do I miss the italian bakeries! But it is delicious. Give it a try.

I enjoy watching all the Crumb Boss videos - this woman owns Woodland Bakery in Chatham, New Jersey and she makes several new videos every weekend and posts the recipes on her blog and uploads her vids to youtube. I have made several of her recipes and they have all come out great. The videos are funny.

I too was on the quest for the perfect Italian butter cookie!

I too lived in Evanston off Main St. (behind the ice rink)!


I hoever actually found the recepie you seek! (after a two year search for it)

 

Italian Bakery Butter Cookies - By CNC74

 

Let it be known from this day forth that CNC74 spilled the beans and gave up the famous recepie for Italian Bakery Butter Cookies!!! Risking life and limbs (yes probably multiple apendiges) and now in fear of a mob style hit in retrobution I present you the following mystery ingredients:

 

1. 1/2 cup - CORN STARCH!

2. 1 cup - CONFECTIONERS SUGAR

3. 1 1/2 cup - FLOUR

4. 1 Tblsp - PURE VANNILA EXTRACT

5. 2 STICKS SALTED BUTTER

6. 1 TSP - SALT

7. (OPTIONAL) 1 EGG YOLK (ADDS THE RICH YELLOW COLOR SOME HAVE REPORTED)

8. (OPTIONAL) INSTEAD OF EGG YOLK: YELLOW FOOD COLORING.

 

BEAT BUTTER AND VANILLA FIRST THEN ADD THE DRY INGREDIENTS. PRESS YOUR MIX WITH A WALTON COOKIE PRESS FO RBEST LOOKING RESULTS! BAKE 10 MINUTES AT 350.

 

NOW FOR THE TRICK TO ADDING "SPRINKLES" AFTER THE FACT.

1/4 cup - CONFECTIONERS SUGAR

TSP - WATER

MIX WELL TO A PASTE CONSISTANCY (ADD MORE WATER IF NESASARY. BRUSH ON TOP OF COOKIES AND APPLY THE SPRINKLES!

 

THATS IT FOLKS!

About a year ago I was obsessing about these cookies, too....but the ones that have the longer shape and then dipped in chocolate and then sprinkled. I found a recipe, a very simple one and everybody I know looooooves them...I have to bring them to every party I go to! I don't know if its exactly what you're looking for...but definitely worth making!

Beat 4 sticks unsalted butter, add 1/2 cup granulated sugar and beat til fluffy....add one egg, vanilla and almond extracts (I just eyeball this, maybe 1 tsp each?)...add 4 cups all-purpose flour (I've used some cake flour on occasion as well, maybe 1 cup in addition to 3 cups AP flour)... add flour a cup at a time until blended...then I put it inthe pastry bag with a large star tip (can't think of the number, but not the 1M...the one with more "teeth" (typong this in bed now and don't feel like getting up to see which one! lol)...bake @350 for 10-15 min until lightly golden brown...let cool then dip in melted chocolate then sprinkles.

Hope this helps! When I was looking it up, the person who had this recipe said that she was told to find one without baking powder/soda....so I dont't know if that helps....hope some of you will enjoy this recipe!
