Almond Spritz Cookies
Why This Recipe Works
Managing a finicky ingredient list is the biggest challenge in preparing a spritz cookie recipe. Carefully balancing the butter, sugar, flour, egg (yolk only), heavy cream (just a drop), vanilla, and salt is the only path to success—a few simple ingredients gathered in the proper proportions. Creaming the butter and sugar in traditional fashion worked well and produced a dough light enough to easily press or pipe the cookies.
