Recipe Tips

Add additional milk, 1 tablespoonful at a time, if dough is too dry and crumbly.

This recipe is wonderful. I have made these cookies five years running and everyone always loves them. The browned butter adds a deeper butter flavor and an almost nutty flavor. They are wonderful and a step above ordinary Spritz cookies.

Browning the butter at different degrees of browness changes the flavor subtly...giving each batch a different flavor!
