Spritz cookies are similar to sugar cookies. They're made with a cookie press. The one I have is passed down from my grandmother.
I have been using the same recipe since I started making these when I was about eight years old. It is adapted from The Joy of Cooking cookbook.
1 C butter, room temperature
1/2 C sugar
1 large egg
2 vanilla bean pods, scraped, or 2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 C flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
It doesn't seem like much dough, but it makes about 4 dozen cookies.
J liked the heart most of all.
Pressing the dough was easy enough that J could help. He kept trying to turn his head upside down to see the dough coming out.
