These tasty little cookies melt in your mouth. They taste just like he Cheryl & Co. sugar cutouts, however these are made with a cookie press (much easier!!). So good!!

The cookies themselves rate a 5-star ranking.They are wonderful. I made sure I followed the directions and baked them just until set and not until browned. They very much taste like Cheryl & Co's cookies. IIMO, the frosting needs some revisions. The amount it makes is way, way too much for 1 batch of cookies. A half recipe of the frosting would suffice. I couldn't swear that the frosting tastes the same as Cheryl & Co, but it is a nice buttercream frosting. I love the idea of spritz cookies at times other than Christmas. Thanks for posting the recipe.
