Lemon Poppy Seed Spritz Cookies -Halloween or Any Day

The dough for these Lemon Poppy Seed Spritz Cookies is a dream to work with! It was the perfect consistency and the cookies stuck to the baking sheet without any trouble at all. I like that in a spritz cookie:@) My first thought was, how could 1 tsp of poppy seeds be enough for all of that dough? But it really was, although, if you're a big poppy seed lover you may want to add a bit more. The predominant flavor is lemon, but you will notice the poppy seeds too. Don't hesitate to give these a try folks, any time of year using any disc shaped desired. They are flavorful cookies that would be perfect with a nice cup of tea.

I used the Oxo spider disc from their fall set since we're getting close to Halloween:@)

Spider web napkins are 98¢ at Walmart this year.
Recipe easily cut in half, just estimate half of the yolk.
Half of the recipe will make two cookies sheets.

Lemon Poppy Seed Spritz Cookies-from Wilton
1 C butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 C sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 tsp lemon extract
1 1/2 tsp lemon zest

1/4 tsp salt

  1. Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar with mixer until light and fluffy.
  2. Add yolk, vanilla, lemon extract and zest and poppy seeds, mix well.
  3. Mix in flour and salt.
  4. Load cookie press with dough and desired disc, press cookies onto cool, ungreased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Enjoy a cookie and have a happy day:@)
