000 Ratings



1 1/2 cups LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder

Chocolate Coating

1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) real semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening


Heat oven to 375°F. Combine butter and sugar. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg, vanilla and almond extract; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, cinnamon and baking powder. Beat until well mixed.

Fit cookie press with ribbon template; fill with dough. Press dough into long strips, 1-inch apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Cut strips with knife every 1 1/2 to 2 inches. (DO NOT SEPARATE.) Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes; separate into cookies. Cool completely.

Melt chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth (2 to 4 minutes). Spread bottom-side of each cookie with chocolate. Let stand on waxed paper, chocolate-side up, until set.

Recipe Tip

Add the chocolate coating in a snap, just use a pastry brush about the same width as the cookies.

Sugar Sprinkled Spritz: Omit chocolate coating. Sprinkle spritz cookies with decorator sugar before baking.

Cinnamon Spritz Sandwich Cookies: Spread bottom of 1 cookie with chocolate. Top chocolate with second cookie, bottom-side down.
