Making spritz cookies will go more smoothly if you pack the dough firmly into the cookie press. This eliminates any air pockets that could leave holes in the shapes.
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon anise extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
Anise Butterflies Recipe at
In a large mixing bowl beat the butter or margarine with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and ginger; beat till combined. Beat in the egg yolk and anise extract. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon. Do not chill dough.

Pack the dough into a cookie press fitted with a butterfly plate. Force dough through press 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or till edges of cookies are firm but not brown. Remove cookies from pans and cool on a rack.
