The Best Spritz Cookies

The Best Spritz Cookies

When I was a little girl, my favorite Christmas cookie was a little green tree that my mom called Spritz cookies. They were buttery with a touch of almond and oh so good!

These are the Best Spritz Cookies because I browned the butter first. I often brown butter for everything because it gives an extra special taste of caramel nuttiness and tastes great with everything from desserts to veggies. If you are nervous about browning butter check out my video:

If you are using butter flavored coconut oil (click HERE to find) instead of butter because of a dairy allergy, do nut try to brown it. Coconut oil can’t brown, but the cookies will still taste fantastic!
