Chocolate Spritz (Cookie Press) Recipe
Chocolate cookie dough is pressed through a cookie press creating delightful chocolate spritz cookies that are perfect for bake sales and Christmas cookie tins.
This is one of two recipes that my family ALWAYS makes at Christmas. Chocolate spritz cookies with holiday sprinkles will add variety to any cookie tray with a minimum of effort.
My old electric cookie press just wouldn't work properly this Christmas so I looked at reviews and settled on the Marcato Biscuit (cookies elsewhere in the world) maker. I wanted to try chocolate spritz for my husband. This recipe caught my attention, and after reading the reviews I decided to try it. I did use 2 tablespoons of milk, 2 teaspoons vanilla and only about 2-1/2 cups flour. The dough seemed a little sticky but I went with it. It went through my new cookie press like a dream! The taste is good, but I would prefer more chocolate so next time I'm going to try more cocoa. Otherwise, these are pretty good "biscuits".
I didn't change one thing in the recipe, absolutely delicious and I have made them over and over again. LOVE them!
