On this, the 12th and final day of our 12 Days of Christmas Cookies, we have spritz cookies. Spritz cookies are a simple butter cookie, shaped using a cookie press. Their origins can be traced back to Germany and Scandinavia. Their name comes from the German word “spritzen”, which means to squirt because the dough is squirted or pressed through a cookie press to achieve their unique shapes.
Spritz cookies are eye-catching on any Christmas cookie tray. Not too sweet and perfectly buttery, these festive cookies are classic and nostalgic. They would be perfect for a party or for a cookie exchange.
