Gingerbread Spritz

Like spiced cookies? Here's a fun one to add to the tray, Gingerbread Spritz! I usually save my spicy spritz for the animal shaped cookies, Scottie or camel. This year I used a flower shape, I decided a simple cinnamon candy would add a pop of color and a little bite of flavor. They turned out pretty!

Gingerbread Spritz-from Wilton
2/3 C brown sugar-I added 2 extra Tblsp
1 egg
1 C butter, softened
3 C A/P flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
  1. Cream sugar, egg and butter.
  2. Add the rest and mix well.
  3. Fill press and press cookies onto ungreased, not non-stick cookie sheets. 
  4. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until done.
  5. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes then remove to a cooling rack.
My tip: If you replace a spritz cookie maker always keep your plates. I was bummed when my Mirro broke but thankfully I saved the plates and they work with my new press. The older plates are different (and more detailed) than the newer ones and make a slightly bigger cookie.
