Spritz are buttery cookies that are formed into a variety of shapes by forcing dough through a cookie press. They are often referred to as pressed cookies.
Using a cookie press takes practice and requires a bit of patience. To achieve good results when making spritz, keep these tips in mind:
Use soft butter to obtain the right dough consistency.
The dough should be at room temperature before filling the cookie press.
Press the cookies onto ungreased cookie sheets. This will allow the dough to release cleanly from the press to create perfect shapes.
Work slowly. If at first you don't succeed, just try again. Gather up the dough for another go!
