Red Velvet Spritz with Chocolate Drizzle

I decided to try something totally new for my Monthly Spritz Challenge, I made some Red Velvet Spritz for February and Valentine's Day. This turned out to be a very nice dough to work with, a great consistency and it stuck to the sheets well. Not to mention, it's a very tasty cookie too! Dangerously tasty:@)

To keep things simple I added some chocolate chips to Wilton disposable icing bags and microwaved them for about 20 seconds a pop. 
Then kneaded the bag between intervals until the chips melted. Cutting a very small hole makes the drizzle pretty and delicate.
You can find many more Spritz flavors and recipes by clicking on my 'spritz cookie' label HERE.

Had to share... I found this really cool company while nosing around the net, Impress Bakeware.
 They offer many different sets of discs for cookie presses, all the holidays and many fun themes.
Look at these really cute Valentine's discs they have!

St. Pat's is coming up too-kids would love that fun Leprechaun:@)

Red Velvet Spritz-from Taste of Home
1 C butter, softened
3oz cream cheese
1 C sugar
1 large egg, separated
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp red food coloring paste-I used Americolor Super Red Gel Paste
1/2 tsp peppermint extract, optional-I did not use this
2 1/2 C A/P flour
1 Tblsp cocoa powder
1 Tblsp water, for egg wash
Chocolate for drizzling
  1. Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Mix in egg yolk, vanilla, food coloring and peppermint if using.
  3. Add flour and cocoa powder, mix well.
  4. Fill press, form cookies onto cool, ungreased cookie sheets. If decorating with sprinkles: Mix egg white with the water, brush on each cookie, add sprinkles. If drizzling with chocolate you don't need the egg wash.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool on sheets for 2 minutes, remove to wire rack.
  6. Once cool, drizzle with melted chocolate.

  3. Those look yummy! I am going to have to try your recipe. I wonder if those Impress Bakeware discs work with the Oxo cookie press. Their Easter set is super cute as well.

  8. These are perfect for Valentine's Day! I do miss your pig updates. Didn't you used to include talking pigs in your posts? I just saw the little pig filled with cole slaw at the side of your blog. Where have they gone? Out to pasture I guess??
