12 Days of Christmas Cookies : Chocolate Spritz

On the 11th Day of Christmas Cookies as we near the end of these yummy 12 days, I'm sharing a recipe that is full of chocolatey flavor, the Chocolate Spritz. 

This cookie has a hearty dough and the little dollop of frosting in the center pulls the flavors all together. This one came as a recommendation from Mom, something she had remembered from Christmas pasts but wasn't always an essential that I could recall from growing up. But after tasting the little treats I decided to add them to my holiday line up for good.

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 squares (2 oz) unsweetened, melted chocolate

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix butter, sugar, egg yolks, chocolate and flavoring well. Work flour into the butter mixture. Use 1/4 of the dough at a time and force through cookie press on an ungreased cookie sheet in desired shapes. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, but do not let cookies brown. Ice if desired. Enjoy!
