I made these cookies early since I had left over glace cherries after I soaked the fruits to make Rose's fruitcake from HC. So many bottles..so you get the idea this is really my favorite fruitcake. :)
These spritz cookies fairly easy..so just the usual creaming method..
Then I piped..and put half glace cherries on top.
And bake for 12mins.
I really like how it is not as sweet and the sweetness comes from the glaced cherries.
Not sure if I am imagining it or what, but these cookies creamed with granulated/caster sugar, somehow traps moisture.. my cookies turned soft even in air-tight container. I was expecting "Viennese Cookies or Danish Butter Cookies type of cookies - dry but yet still melt in mouth texture"... But these spritz cookies tasted more like "soft rolled sugar cookies".. still taste good though, just not what I imagined it to be. So I was thinking perhaps these cookies if made with icing sugar would be better?
Anyway, I just have to remind myself when I eat the cookies that these are spritz butter cookies and not Vaniljekranse Danish butter cookies so I shouldn't expect them to be the same... :)
