Caramel Spritz Cookies (T&T)
There is one rule which I live by when making spritz cookies. It is a tried and true method of achieving consistency every time.
1) Don’t grease cookie sheets.
2) Add flour gradually.
3) Check for dough consistency before adding all of the flour.
4) If dough is too dry, add 1 egg yolk.
5) If dough is too soft, chill 30 to 60 minutes.
approximately 60 to 70 cookies
I drizzle these with bittersweet melted chocolate. Yummy!
