Cookie Pressing

September 24
Continuous Free Demo
11am – 3pm

A cookie press easily allows you to make quick work of your dough, and create beautifully shaped cookies for a tray without the hassle of rolling dough and using cookie cutters. Traditionally called spritz cookies, they are a German Christmas tradition, and are very popular in the Nordic countries as well. And they’re quickly winning the taste buds of many on this side of the Atlantic!

A simple, rich buttery recipe makes these delicate, crumbly cookies, somewhat reminiscent of shortbread in texture. (As a matter of fact, Google translates Spritzgebäck as Shortbread.) Spritz can be translated as To Squirt or Spatter, and you’ll see why when you’re pushing the dough out of the press.

Join us to learn the secrets to baking perfect Spritz cookies, using the OXO Cookie Press.

Called Biscotti di Prato or Cantuccini, these scrumptious twice-baked cookies have their origins in the Tuscan city of Prato.

Biscotti are first baked in the shape of a loaf, then sliced, and the slices are turned on their side and briefly put back in the oven to brown to your desired taste for crispiness. This crispy texture not only makes them crunchy to the tooth, but also makes them easier to handle, and perfect for holding their shape longer when dunking in your coffee, hot cocoa, milk, chai, and more. A great alternative to your ice cream spoon, as you can munch on a piece with every scoop.

Come and join Nadia as she samples and provides expert tips and advice on making these Italian treats. Yum!
