Grandma's Spritz Cookies

It's the best time of the year! To me, Christmas means spritz cookies. Okay, of course it means a lot
more than cookies, but this blog is about food and that is what I am here to talk about! :) I make these spritz cookies for all of our neighbors, filling up tin after tin. Sometimes if I am brave, I bring them to work, just to watch them get scoffed up within minutes! Then I get yelled at because we’re always dieting, aren’t we?

One of the most special things about my grandma, is having her recipe cards passed down. She has made this recipe more than a thousand times probably! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. You will need a cookie press for these, and after lots of trial and error... I recommend the kitchenaid cookie press! It works fabulously.

Makes about 70-75 cookies

3 oz cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 cup soft butter (2 sticks)
1 unbeaten egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a stand mixer, beat butter, sugar, cream cheese - blend well.

3. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Slowly add flour, salt and cinnamon - beat well.

4. Using the cookie press, fill up each cookie sheet, decorate with sprinkles if you choose, and bake for 15 minutes. 

5. Try not to eat more than five at a time.

  1. This sure seems to be a great recipe and I believe it is healthy for kids too. Do let me know if it is good for people on a diet.
