Full recipe to follow at the end.
First, make the dough.
Here is my cookie press. I got mine at Amazon. Here is the link to it.
I shall warn you...do not attempt spritz if you have had a stressful day. Sometimes the cookie press works like a dream...other times it is pure evil. They take some patience for sure. It is best to not use a non-stick cookie sheet. When you place the gun on the sheet and squeeze...you want the cookie to stick to the baking sheet, which won't always happen with a non-stick sheet. I only have non-stick...hence the stress.
Here they are all ready for the oven.
Here they are cooling down. I am drooling just looking at them. Yummo!
