Grandma Wendt's Almond Spritz Cookie Recipe
35 mins (prep 20, cooking 15)
6 ingredients
5 servings
This is a 3rd generation holiday cookie; my kids insist that it be made every year, as did I. I even searched e-bay for the old metal cookie press like my Mom used. I know there are more "modern" presses, but it would not be as traditional for me as twisting the handle on the old silver press. *Use all purpose, not self rising flour for this recipe.If the dough is resistant to being pressed try these tricks: Very lightly spray the exit point of the press and disk with cooking spray. This step should be repeated each time the press is emptied and needs to be refilled. Wash and dry press after each time it empties; with the final rinse being cold.
