How to Make Swedish Spritz Cookies

  2. With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture. Beat until a soft dough is formed.
  3. Place the dough in a cookie press and form cookies on an ungreased baking sheet - 1 inch apart. Chill remaining dough until needed. Sprinkle with colored sugar. Bake cookies 7 to 9 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Cool on baking sheet 1 minute and remove. Cook completely on a wire cooling rack.
