Rated 5 out of 5 by stefanikay from This is my favorite spritz recipe. The cookies are so fun and easy to make with a cookie press, and the lemon flavore is really delicious. My tip for pressed cookies: make sure you press enough dough out for each cookie, or when they bake they won't come together. (I always have a few flowers end up a just petals that didn't bake together because I didn't use enough dough.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Guinevere from This recipe tastes wonderful and is very easy to make, but when it says that it makes 4 dozen, that is a big dirty lie! I needed at least 8 dozen so I made two batches, and would have ended up with about 18 dozen if I hadn't broken a bunch taking them off the pan. Still, you can't have too many cookies, so I will very happily make this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angela B from I found this recipe because I had about a hundred Meyer Lemons from a friend's tree and couldn't face yet another lemon bundt cake. I used about 2x the zest and no lemon extract and because the Meyers are so sweet and flavorful already, these turned out delicate and delicious! The dough expressed easily from my cookie press too. I highly recommend this recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by whoknew from Better than Classic recipe! Just finished making 2 recipes: Wilton Lemon Spritz and Wilton Classic Spritz. Although both are good, the Lemon is best. Following the recipe exactly didn't produce super-lemoney cookies, in fact, the lemon was very subtle. But, even when overcooked and nearly black on the bottom, the lemon spritz were excellent. Cooked at 350F, but MUST watch at 7 minutes and adjust time in 1-3 minute increments thereafter!!! Each batch must be uniform (same) because each batch will require more or less minutes to cook. Personally, I like them best with a little extra browning around the edges rather than "just barely brown". These work best with the Wilton Ultra Pro II cookie press. I tried making the classic recipe with a 1M tip and piping bag, and they lost definition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snowflake from I was browsing for recipe with cream cheese and lemon extract when I found this one. Had some Mascarpone cheese left in the fridge, so used it instead of cream cheese. So tried this recipe and it came out absolutely flawless. My little one loves it. The lemon zest and Mascarpone just make a big difference. Can't wait to share with my friends too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by winston&shelby from Finally - a cookie recipe with enough lemon flavor. I used dried lemon peel and they turned out great. I hope they freeze well. I am also going to try to adjust the recipe size so that I can use 8 oz of cream cheese. wonderful - will make again

Rated 5 out of 5 by BirmanMama from Just out of the oven, and I must say these are the best spritz cookies yet! I added a bit more lemon extract (1.25 tsp was to my taste) and used the whole egg. Fabulous ... but beware, they could be addicting!
