The “secret” ingredient in this Cinnamon Spritz Cookie is a spice called Cardamon. Most grocery stores do sell this but it is on the pricey side.
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 sticks, Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks (or you may use unsalted butter), softened at room temperature
3/4 cup organic sweetener or any natural sugar substitute such as a stevia blend
1 large egg
Filling: 1 container of Ricemellow Creme
Italian Amaretti Cookies
Another easy to make cookie with only 3 ingredients. Made with real almond paste.
One 8-ounce can almond paste
3/4 cup sugar
2 large egg whites, beaten just to break up
Spritz cookies, also known as Swedish Butter cookies are squeezed out of a cookie press or pastry bag with a star tip. The term “spritz” is German for “spritzen” meanign to squirt.
Any butter cookie recipe you have on hand can be turned into a Spritz cookie. These cookies were squeezed out of a large star tip and swirled to look like rosettes. I had some cookie filling on hand and made sandwiches, then added some confection sugar on top for appearance.
