Don't you find it intriguing to learn about the magnificent past behind the origination of the cookies? Well, we do too! So here is a quick recap on the history behind the creation of the spritz cookies.
So if you were not aware, these are simple butter cookies that acquired their popularity through their wonderful appearance and the amazing imprints on the surface. Sharing the Scandinavian origin, these cookies are symbolic of the arrival of Christmas! The word spritz is derived from the German word "spritzer," which means " To squirt.". This is because the dough needs to be pushed and then squirted through the cookie press. Earlier, these cookies were made in the shape of "s" and "o" but nowadays, several Christmas customized shapes are also very common, like trees, reindeer, Santa, and so on.
So what are spritz cookies exactly?
If you are confused about which category the spritz cookies land into, then here is what exactly they are! These are basically soft butter cookies that are adorned with nonpareils, candy, sprinkles, fruit pieces, chopped nuts, currants or raisins, and so on.
To make your spritz cookies, you will need a cookie press, without which it is simply not possible to give the required shape to the cookies!
Now let us find out about the common tips that you need to follow as you initiate the process of preparing spritz cookies! Let's go!
Tips to getting your spritz cookies right
- You must ensure that the butter that you use while mixing the dough is very soft, almost on the verge of melting but not totally melted! The texture should be such that it is unable to hold its shape but never too runny, like a liquid also.
- Make sure that you bring out the eggs from the refrigerator about one hour before you begin the process of mixing all the ingredients together! Cold eggs will fail to make the cookies rise or become fluffy, which is the reason you are adding eggs!
- In the case of spritz cookies, contrary to others where you are expected to cool the dough before baking, you must let the dough be warm and at room temperature before it is pressed! This ensures the dough sticks to the surface of the press well and acquires the required shape.
Things to know about the baking tray- you must make sure that the ungreased baking tray is cold so that the pressed dough now easily adheres to its surface. If the dough still does not stick on the surface of the tray, place the tray inside the freezer for a while. In this case, you are advised against using any baking sheet or parchment paper, which can make the cookies slide and fall off.
