Spritz Cookies are my all time favorite which is not only easy to make but would be a perfect gift for anyone packed in a fancy box. A cookie press helps is making different shapes but I did not have one, so used what is available right in my kitchen and everyone’s too, the fork! You can serve them plain, sprinkled with any decorations, colored or plain sugar, dipped in chocolate and many more; the imagination is just endless. My family and friends truly enjoyed it and I hope your’s will too.
3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp corn starch
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
2 tbsp warm milk
1 tsp vanilla or almond extract
Mix flour and corn starch in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together butter, sugar, vanilla extract using a hand blender, kitchen mixer or a whisk until smooth and creamy.
Add the flour mixture, milk and mix until smooth and there are no lumps. Use your hand if needed which I did to form a dough.
Pre-heat oven to 350F. Take a small portion and place it between your palm and roll into a ball, then place it on a lightly greased baking sheet or a non-stick sheet. Flatten lightly with your palms, then use the fork to make the impressions all around the dough and bake for about 15 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown around the edges. Enjoy it as is or use your imagination to decorate it.
Looks yum n perfect …any replacement for corn starch ..if you know?
I personally think you can add besan if you do not want to sue cornstarch. I used it since it is only 2 tbsp. I have made cookies with besan – Naan Khatai . Hope this helps.
