Chocolate Malt Spritz Cookies

Wait, don’t leave yet!

I know what you are thinking. You are probably thinking you are done with sweets and baking for the year!

Please say it isn’t so…?



Butterscotch Spritz Holiday Wreaths

Welcome to Cookie Month here on Daydreamer Desserts!

As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program we often receive emails with offers to try out free samples or coupons for a certain product.

Well, as soon as I saw the email addressed from Foodbuzz asking if I would like to opt-in for a chance to receive a free sample of REAL Butter and a holiday baking kit. I opened that baby up, clicked on the link, filled out the short survey, and crossed my fingers hoping I would be one of the lucky 12 selected for such an amazing sample.



I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.

My Christmas was very nice, we celebrated Christmas Eve quietly at home then Christmas morning [post present opening] the family and I drove to Las Vegas for a little weekend fun.

But back to Christmas Eve… Having had to work that day and not having done much planning on what I was going to serve for our Christmas Eve dinner I was surprised at how well it all turned out. Everyone loved every single dish, but I have to say the star of the show was the Calamari. [Yum!]

A close second were these yummy cookies we had for dessert, I think they tasted way better than those in the blue tin so, if you are a fan of those, you definitely need to give these a try.

Cookie Month: Danish Butter Cookies
adapted from All Recipes

Makes too many to count! :)

3 cups unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
7 egg yolks
6 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.

Beat in the yolks one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder. Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet in a few batches.

Using a cookie press, press cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes and remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
