I want to make spritz cookies, but I don’t have a cookie press. Can I just drop them by teaspoon onto cookie sheet?

You could do that, but they really wouldn’t be spritz cookies. You really need that little cookie press to make those dainty little designs. I would would use a cookie cutter if you have one, to give it a design and then use the colored sugar.

    2/3 cup sugar
    1 cup butter
    1 egg
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

    Heat oven to 400F. In large mixer bowl combine sugar, butter, egg, salt, and vanilla. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture is light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add flour. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed, 2 to 3 minutes. Place dough in cookie press. Form desired shapes 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

    Note: Can also color dough with food coloring, and decorate with dragées and colored sugar.

    Use a cookie cuter and a fork or knife to make designs in them.
