Nothing says Christmas to me like Spritz shaped like trees and sprinkled with green sugar. My Swedish grandmother made Spritz cookies year round but she only made tree shaped ones at Christmas time.
Here’s her recipe if you’d like to give them a go:
1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp almond flavoring

Happy Swedish Christmas!
