Swedish Spritz Cookies Recipe

Whenever I travel I try to catch up on my magazine reading. I usually have a few Self and Good Housekeeping issues to catch up on because I tend to read blogs more than magazines these days. For my recent trip to Chicago I grabbed the March issue of Self, which was bundled with an Easter-focused issue of All Recipes magazine.

One section of All Recipes had recipes for hard boiled eggs that went beyond the usual egg salad. I was surprised to see a cookie recipe that used hard boiled egg yolks for the batter, and was intrigued enough to tear out the recipe and try it at home.

The cookies turned out great and since the batter doesn’t include any raw eggs, I could lick the beaters without fear!

 Have you ever baked with hard boiled egg yolks?

Whenever I travel I try to catch up on my magazine reading. I usually have a few Self and Good Housekeeping issues to catch up on …



  1. Prepare hard boiled eggs in advance so you have cool/room-temperature eggs to use. (I baked a batch of eggs the morning before I made the cookies.)
  2. Preheat oven to 400F.
  3. Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla.
  4. Press egg yolks through a sieve into the mixing bowl.
  5. Gradually add flour and mix thoroughly. (I added food coloring to jazz them up for a potluck.)
  6. Transfer dough to cookie press and press cookies onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. (I sprinkled with colored sugar.)
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until edges just begin to turn golden. Transfer to baking rack to cool.

    I have never cooked with hard-boiled egg yolks in baking recipes, but have seen such recipes in one of my cookbooks. I still read magazines, not so many blogs (present company excepted :-)), but often look for recipes on-line…and still enjoy using and reading/leafing through cookbooks.

    I really love magazines – I subscribe to four monthly health/fitness ones. I spend so much time at my PC that relaxing with a mag on the sofa or in bed is a real treat.
