    I have made this Spritz cookie recipe 5 times. Each time the cookies tasted too salty, but a little less salty each time. Tomorrow I will try again and reduce the salat content to 1/8 and hopefully that will work.

      Hi Joanne,
      Salt is added to bring out and enhance the flavors of the cookies. You can leave it out if you wish, but this will change the flavor profile.
