      I received a Wilton Cookie Pro Ultra Spritz cookie maker for Christmas last year. I was searching for a recipe since the one provided on the box failed. These turned out great! I divided the dough and colored one red and the other green. These were very easy to make. I altered the flavoring just a little by adding 1/2 teaspoon of Almond extrac and 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla. I also took the extra egg white and made a glaze paste with decorative sprinkles over the cookies just before putting in the oven.

      I tried this for a different variation on spritz this year, and I'm very glad I did. It could have been a little sweeter for my tastes, but it was closer to the taste I have been searching for than the "regular" spritz recipes I've tried in past years have been (and I'm sure my family is going to enjoy them). I made a half batch as a test run yesterday, and I got 58 cookies. It seemed like some of them spread during baking a little more than I was expecting - not sure why some spread and some didn't. Ultimately for my oven it took a bake time of between 11-1/2 to 12 minutes. Thank you for posting, I look forward to making these again in the future! EDITED TO SAY these are really good out of the freezer!!! YUM!
