Merry Christmas Eve! Time to eat (more) cookies! In my book, it is pretty much a requirement that one eats cookies nearly non-stop around the Holidays up until January 1st; one more week of required cookie eating, darn. How will we ever survive another week of cookie eating?! ;)

     A lot of people these days have family or friends who have special dietary needs. Maybe you, or someone you know, has a restricted diet? Some of us are gluten-free, some of us can't eat dairy, and some of us choose not to eat dairy or eggs. This spritz cookie recipe is subtable for those who do not eat dairy or eggs. These cookies do not compromise richness, flavor, or classic Spritz cookie appeal. 

    Amanda, my sister, came up with the modifications for this classic recipe. Sometimes adjusting a recipe to be free of dairy and eggs does not work out favorably. Standard basic recipes can be rather scientific, and the smallest alteration can destroy a perfectly wonderful classic recipe. The modifications Amanda made do not compromise any of the classic Spritz cookie appeal. Thanks for the delicious cookie recipe, Amanda! 

Recipe:
  • 1 cup Earth Balance "butter" 
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups flour (or whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 "egg" worth of Ener-G Egg Replaces
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cream sugar, "butter", & vanilla. Add remaining ingredients, slowly. Please do not over blend! 

Press dough into holiday shaped cookies, such as Christmas trees, with a Spritz Cookie cookie press gun. 
Top cookies with appropriate colored sprinkles and cookie decor.

Bake cookies in a preheated 400 degree F oven for about 6-7 minutes.

I loved Spritz cookies growing up. But as an adult I've learned my body can't tolerate dairy and eggs. I've been looking for a good dairy and egg free Spritz recipe. Might have to give this a try!
