My husband is a happy man!! I finally made the Spritz cookies he has been begging for and he doesn’t have to fight my Dad for them. I am happy too because my oldest daughter is home from college and helped make the Spritz and did all the decorating!!! Life is good!!!!!!
These cookies have been on the cookie tray as long as I can remember, they are so yummy and with the new cookie press so easy!!! Really the new cookie press makes all the difference….it’s not torture making these, it is actually kind of fun. Buttery and delicious, just make sure not to overbake and make lots because they will disappear. Oh, I made them green this year (totally confused my husband) in order to differentiate between batches. Next week I plan on making another type of Spritz so I wanted to be able to tell them apart.
