orange spritz cookies

12.23.2011


What a crazy past couple of months! I've been neglecting my poor little blog due to life. And life I mean: graduate school, family, friends, holidays, and most exciting of all expecting a little one. Yes! We will go from two to three May next year! Now, that I am well into my second trimester and feeling much better, along with my winter break from school, I can once again focus on creating yummy goodies in the kitchen. With a week until Christmas, I scrambled together some buttery cookies to send out to friends. The first are these lovely orange spritz!

  • 110 grams butter, room temperature
  • 90 grams sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/4 tsp orange extract
  • zest of 1/2 an orange
  • 180 grams flour
  • 2 grams salt
directions:
  1. Cream the butter, sugar, orange zest and orange extract together until well combined. Add the yolks and mix until combined. Add the flour and salt and mix.
  2. Place the soft dough into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe 1-1/2 inches onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake at 350F for about 12 minutes or until lightly golden.
  4. Let them cool completely.
