Buttery Yeast Spritz Cookies

In my never ending search for new cookie press recipes I fell upon these Buttery Yeast Spritz Cookies. Yeast in cookies? Truly a different ingredient and I have to say, these cookies are very light, very tender, and have a huge butter flavor! I think this recipe is very close to bakery style cookies, and the sprinkling of colored sugar adds a nice little extra sweet touch. So, if you'd like to add a new cookie recipe to your list of things to try... How about bringing the cookie press out of storage, choosing a flower disc, and baking up a colorful spring bouquet:@)

This is a nice dough that sticks to the cookie sheets very well, and the recipe is easily cut in half:@)

  1. Now that is something I have never heard of, Lynn, with yeast in Spritz! I’d love to give the cookies a try, and share with my neighbors. It’s always fun to try a new recipe and bring some smiles to others.

  2. I am definitely going to give these a try. I will probably opt for a half recipe, because we (I) don't need too many cookies around.

  3. They look so soft and flavorful!

  4. I am intrigued, and would like to try this!

  5. Such a pretty spring cookie bouquet Lynn! ♥
