    egg yolk

How to Make Spritz Cookie Dough

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat together butter & cream cheese at high speed. Add sugar gradually until light and fluffy. Add egg yolk, lemon extract, and lemon peel. Sift flour and salt together. Add in three additions, mixing well after each. Shape dough into two rolls. Place rolls into cookie press and shape cookies directly on ungreased cookie sheet. Decorate and bake 7- 8 min in 400 degree oven.

    Tip: The dough works at room temp (right after you mix it). You can use the Beater Blade to the Kitchenaid Mixer (sort of triangle-y shaped one). The press uses one click per cookie. This works with the Airbake nonstick cookie sheet. The cookies brown on the bottom. So after your timer goes off, you need to lift one up off the pan to see if it's browning yet. You can substitute almond extract and omit the lemon peel for a different flavor. You can play with the extracts, just not the amount. Enjoy!
    I hope this helps someone out there.
