Spritzgebäck Butter Cookies (Piped Spritz)

Spritzgebäck are a classic butter cookie popular in Germany and Scandinavia. The literal translation of "Spritz" means to "spray" or "squirt" which refers to the fact that these cookies are pressed or piped into elaborate designs.  And while they are commonly considered a Christmas confection I would happily accept a plateful of Spritz any day of the year. Buttery golden cookies with a delicate crumb and just the right amount of jammy centers.
