#1: Classic Spritz Cookies Adapted from Elizabeth’s Edible Experience

Dough
1 1/2c butter
3/4 c sugar
1 egg
2 tbs milk
1tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract (optional)
3 1/2c all purpose flour
1tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Throughly cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs.
Mix in the milk, vanilla (and almond) extract.
Whisk together the flour and baking soda.
Gradually add the creamed mixture into the flour mixture.
Line the cookies onto the baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes

Topping
Dulce de leche>> I boiled 1/2c of condense milk until it turned amber brown.
unsweetened coconut shreds
dried blueberries and cranberries
   

#2: Sesame Pinwheel Cookies
Dough
1 1/2 stick of butter
1/2c sugar
2 eggs
2 tbs + splash of milk as needed
1 tsp vanilla extract
3c all purpose flour
1tsp baking powder

Adhesive
1 egg

Filling

sesame powder
sugar
chopped peanuts

The mechanism for making the dough is the same as the directions for the Classic Spritz cookies. 

Roll out the dough until it becomes a rectangular shape piece

Beat an egg and brush a light layer of the mixture onto the dough

Generously sprinkle the filling onto the dough. Scatter the filling until all parts of the dough is covered 

Start from the end nearest you and roll the dough into a log. Make sure roll tightly to secure the filling. 

Cut the log into pieces and put onto baking sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.
