Spritz Cookies have been a holiday favorite for generations! Spritz cookies are a German cookie referred to as “Spritzgebäck”, which are made from flour, butter, sugar and eggs. They are made using a cookie press that has different templates and make different designs, or can be made using a pastry bag with a star tip. They are called Spritz cookies because they come from the word “spritzen” which means “to squirt”. They are a fragile cookie in nature with a rich buttery taste.
