Spritz cookies are delicate rich buttery cookies, that are shaped either using a cookie press or by piping them. These are also known as Swedish butter cookies and are quite popular during Christmas.
The traditional recipe calls for flour, butter, sugar and eggs. This is an eggless version and made with whole wheat flour. Now don’t roll your eyes reading that. I had to make it a bit healthier somehow [and I wasn’t ready to reduce the butter or sugar , that’s the best part in these cookies].
These are crispy on the outside ,buttery and delicate on the inside, and feel super festive. You can try different flavours and make them fancy looking too.
I made the regular vanilla ones and chocolate spritz cookies. In case you are wondering why they resemble ‘chakli’s/murruku’ , well I used my murruku-maker in place of a cookie press.
This recipe is quite versatile and you can try some fancy stuff if you want. Throw in nuts/ raisins, chocolate chips or make sandwich cookies with a jammy center.
