Yummy festively spiced butter spritz cookies or biscuits. Spritz cookie is a cookie press dough but very buttery in taste, the crumbly soft textured type biscuit.

Spritzgebeck meaning squirt ( A German Christmas biscuit/cookie) is made with flour, butter, sugar and eggs. So these squirt cookies basically means the dough can be squirted through patterned holes ( a cookie press) now known as Spritz cookies.

I’ve had my Pamperchef Cookie press in my cupboard for year, struggling to get any recipe to work until now, the big trick is having a cold cookie sheet or baking tray, literally cold as in put in the fridge for 15 minutes before pressing out the cookies. This does make the process a little harder when you want to bake a big batch. My other tip is not to chill the dough.

Most spritz cookies are made with eggs, however this is a lovely eggless recipe which was given to me by a very good friend, which I did adapt to make them easier to press out using the cookie press.
