A cookie press easily allows you to make quick work of your dough, and create beautifully shaped cookies for a tray without the hassle of rolling dough and using cookie cutters. Traditionally called spritz cookies, they are a German Christmas tradition, and are very popular in the Nordic countries as well. And they're quickly winning the taste buds of many on this side of the Atlantic!
A simple, rich buttery recipe makes these delicate, crumbly cookies, somewhat reminiscent of shortbread in texture. (As a matter of fact, Google translates Spritzgebäck as Shortbread.) Spritz can be translated as To Squirt or Spatter, and you'll see why when you're pushing the dough out of the press.
