Have you been spending more time in your kitchen than any other room in your house? Do you find yourself seeing strange shapes, like stars, angels, and snowmen? Are your face, hair, and clothes covered in a generous dusting of flour? Do you have a colorful selection of sprinkles that would make a rainbow jealous? Then you’ve probably been busy making Christmas cookies!
Perhaps you’ve been making one of the most popular and traditional of Christmas cookies, the spritz. German in origin, the spritz, or spritzgebäck, is a pressed cookie with a rich and buttery flavor. Spritz presses come with discs of varying designs, such as trees, wreaths, and flowers.
