I should start off by saying that I don’t enjoy these cookies as much. Which is a good thing, because my dad will eat an entire batch by himself.
Here’s the weird thing about that; I don’t like these cookies, but I LOVE the uncooked dough. I could eat my weight in this dough.
However, I don’t, because then my weight would increase and I would just have to eat more cookies to keep up, which would mean it would increase and…well, it would be a nasty cycle of gluttony.
But, that’s not what you are here to talk about.
Let’s talk about cookies, shall we?
Some yummy Christmas cookies, perhaps?
The fun thing about Spritz cookies is that you can make ALL kinds of shapes. We have made trees, ornaments, stockings, the Grinch (okay, maybe not the Grinch), but lots of fun shapes!
Then, you can sprinkle all kinds of colors of sugars and toppings on. This is the part where the kids can help you!
This is a recipe that has been in my family for years. Mom’s recipe is even title, “Bruce’s favorite Spritz”, but since ya’ll don’t really know Bruce and probably don’t care what his favorite Spritz are, I will just call this recipe Durn Good Spritz Cookies.
For those who aren’t familiar with the way Southerners speak, “Durn” is another way of saying “Darn”. It’s like Ya’ll, or Bless your heart. Southerners just speak their own language.
My cookie press stopped working in the middle of this batch of cookies. I would NOT recommend this kind!
If you need a cookie press, here is one at Amazon that looks pretty good. You can see all the different shapes you can make from them. (affiliate link)
