I got this recipe from the book entitled The Spirit of Christmas. Originally my mom had this recipe and it was a holiday staple in our house for years.

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.
