Recipe: Spritz Cookies
I find the name of these cookies quite amusing. Spritz comes from spritzen in German which means to pipe. So these are piped cookies.
4 cups (500g) flour
1 cup (250g) butter
1 cup (200g) sugar
1 cup (125g) ground hazelnuts
2 tsp vanilla extract or 2 tbsp vanilla sugar
Add sugar, vanilla and eggs and beat until fluffy.
Add flour and hazelnuts and mix until thoroughly combined.
If you want to actually pipe these cookies, I strongly suggest adding several tablespoons of milk until the dough is softer and possible to pipe.
If you don't want to pipe the cookies, you can roll the dough into balls and press them down to flatten them. I added some sprinkles just for fun.
I did some of each. These are very difficult to pipe, so if you want to go that route, I suggest getting a cookie press to make it easier on your hands.
Bake these at 350°F or 180°C for 10-13 minutes or until the cookies no longer look wet and the edges are just starting to brown.
