We can thank Scandinavian and German countries for the great spritz cookies. The word spritz comes from the German term "spritzen," which means to squirt. The name cookies are squirted through a cookie press, hence the name spritz. 

This version of spritz cookies is made with a special ingredient: cream cheese. These cream cheese spritz cookies are delicious and easy to make. Best of all, these spritz cookies are the perfect Christmas gift, so you can share these delicious cookies with your family and friends. You can also bake some sugar cookies to add a little variety to your Christmas gift.

Why are my spritz cookies so hard?

Your spritz cookies could be hard because you added the flour and mixed it using a hand mixer or the paddle attachment of a stand mixer. Spritz cookies are extremely delicate, so it's easy to overmix the batter. It's best to mix in the flour with a spatula.   

Why are my spritz cookies sticking to the cookie press?

The spritz cookie dough may be too soft. Place the spritz cookie dough in the fridge for 3-4 minutes before pressing the cookie dough onto baking sheets.   

Should spritz cookies be decorated before or after baking?

If you want to decorate the spritz cookies with decorating sugar, do it before you bake the cookies. In contrast, if you want to decorate the spritz cookies with icing, decorate them after they have been baked and are completely cooled.   

How long will spritz cookies stay fresh?

Spritz cookies will last at room temperature for 3-5 days. However, you can also store them in the freeze for 1 month. Whichever method you choose, store the spritz cookies in airtight containers.
