How to make spritz cookies recipe easily?
In this recipe you will discover the simplest yet most flavourful way to make the spritz cookies recipe! Whether you're cooking for a small family dinner or a daytime potluck, follow these easy steps for some excellent bites!
- 90 grams Cake flour
- If cake flour 60 g + katakuriko 40 g = 100 g is substituted for the 90 g of cake flour, the result will be a lighter texture.
- 40 grams Margarine or butter
- 40 grams Milk
- 30 grams Sugar (white sugar)
- 1 dash Matcha
- 1 small quantity on the tip of a toothpick Red food coloring
- For a variation on this recipe, see
- Melt the margarine and milk in the microwave for 5-10 seconds. I recommend using margarine to play up the flavors of matcha and anko.
- Add in the sugar and mix well.
- Add the flour and mix. There's no need to sift.
- Divide the dough roughly into 4 parts. Mix in about the same amount of anko (not listed in ingredients) as the dough.
- The anko dough will be a larger quantity due to the addition of anko so take care to set aside a smaller portion.
- Make the red food coloring cookie dough and matcha dough. Adjust the food coloring/matcha powder according to your own taste.
- Stack each dough on a piece of plastic wrap.
- Roll the wrap as though you are using a sushi rolling mat. Take care not to roll the plastic wrap into the dough.
- Put the plastic-wrapped roll into a pastry bag. A bigger pastry bag will be easier to use. Here, I used a star-shaped tip.
- Pipe the dough in a circular fashion. The individual colored dough will come out beautifully together.
- Piping a wavy pattern is beautiful too.
- If you pipe the dough into smaller cookies, they'll be similar to hina arare (Doll Festival cookies) and look cuter.
- If decorating with dragées they should be sprinkled on the cookie dough before baking. If decorating with chocolate wait until the cookies are baked.
- Preheat oven to 170°C (338 Fahrenheit). Bake for 12-15 minutes at 170°C (338 Fahrenheit). Adjust time according to the brownness of the cookies.
- Even a little bit of decoration makes these cookies cute! The kids loved them.
- Decorated with sugar craft. It's ideal for times when you want to make just a little. https://cookpad.com/us/recipes/146717-sugar-crafted-flowers
