Grandma's Spritz

Debbie Sue


This is my husband's grandmother's recipe. A very old recipe. Grandma always baked plenty of Spritz for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Grandma was born in the late 1800's in Sweden. She was a wonderful baker.

This is a very stiff cookie dough. Also a very fragile cookie when baked. I always let them set a minute or two on the cookie tray when they come out of the oven.
I think this helps.

I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as our family .
