Grandma Jo's Spritz


My grandma and mom did this dough by hand and worked in all 7 cups of flour. They used a Mirro hand crank cookie press. I use my Kitchen Aid stand mixer and an electric cookie press and it will not work with this stiff of dough.

  • 1 pound butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Approximately 7 cups flour( this is too much for most electric cookie presses - I use 5 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Food coloring of choice



Step 1

I use my Kitchen Aid to make this dough

Cream butter and sugar
Add eggs
Add food coloring
Add flour a cup at a time to desired consistency for cookie press

Fill cookie press with desired cookie disc and dough

Press out cookies on cool cookie sheet. Allow cookie cheets to cool between uses to allow dough to stick

Bake 375 degrees for 12 minutes or until cookies slightly brown
