This recipe is really a throwback to my college days when I was a flunky for the head of the Home Economic’s Department. I probably made a million of these Spritz Cookies and became quite a natural with a cookie press. These little cookies are quick to make, but I am hesitant about using the word easy. The dough is quite easy to prepare as long as you can operate a mixer, but the kicker for some could be the use of a cookie press. Following the directions in the Use and Care Manual will be a great help . I found the diagrams are very easy to follow. Now it may take a couple of tries to get the feel of how long to press the trigger, but you can just throw the dough back in the press and start over. If you don’t have a cookie press I encourage you to run out an get one especially if you have children. They love this gadget! You and your family can make some great holiday memories! Check out the little puppies we made at the insistence of one of my angels!
