Marion's Spritz Cookies

Spritz cookies have a colourful history, come in all shapes, and all of my grandchildren have taken their turns making them, while still in their preschool years. I own several Spritz guns or presses, and I love to study the history of this cookie. My favourite recipe comes to my family from Marion, my friend of 47 years.
I have recently made a pilot for television, featuring two of my grandchildren making spritz cookies. Check out a little sample at getabiggerwagon.com/...n_screen.html

How to Make Marion's Spritz Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add eggs and beat well.
  2. Add flour and salt and mix until blended.
    Press through a cookie maker onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake the cookies at 375°F for 10 to12 minutes.
    (This varies with the type pan and the oven. Sometimes they are cooked in 8 minutes.)
  4. Sprinkle the cookies with icing sugar after placing them on a cooling rack. These cookies can be frozen, but they keep well in a tin for a week. They never last longer than that!
