Description

These evaporate in your mouth. Some people make these simple spritz cookies with almond extract (1/2 to 1 teaspoon, to taste) but the lemon adds a very fresh and crisp taste to enhance what is basically a shortbread recipe. Kids love to make the shapes of trees or camels or wreaths. Do not overbake—they shouldn’t turn even slightly brown.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces, fluid Kerry Irish Gold Butter, Softened
  • 3 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • 1  Egg Yolk
  • ½ teaspoons Lemon Flavoring
  • 1 teaspoon Grated Lemon Rind
  • 2-½ cups Sifted Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt

Preparation

Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar well in a mixer. Add egg yolk and flavorings. Beat until very light.

Shake flour through a fine sieve with salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture in 1/2-cupfuls until it is blended well.

Force through a spritz cookie press or spritz gun onto cookie sheets. Bake at 350ºF for 15 minutes or less. Underbake these; do not let them brown. Remove onto wire rack and let cool.

Makes 6 dozen.
