      These are cute little cookies that have a nice mild flavor. Be sure that the pecans are very finely ground or else they can get stuck in the cookie press disks. Mine baked up perfectly in 6 minutes, but they are very fragile so I left them to cool on the sheet for alittle while. I made these for Christmas cookie trays and they were very cute. Thank you for sharing!

      These were a good variation on regular spritz. I made them today as part of my jump-start on Christmas baking. I definitely think they tasted better once dipped in the chocolate (admittedly, I sampled a couple before dipping!). I halved the recipe, but kept the extracts at the full amount. I chilled the dough for about 60 minutes prior to filling my cookie press, just to make sure it was firm enough to easily press out. The main piece of advice I would give to anyone else thinking of making these is to make sure you remove them from the cookie sheet almost right away once they come out of the oven - I let one pan sit too long before trying to remove them and I had a bit of difficulty getting them off. I also had a couple of them break in half when I was trying to dip them, but they still taste good! Thank you for posting!!

      These are incredible!! My sister-in-law made them for Christmas last year. Of all the new cookies I tried last year, this was the only recipe I made sure I got for my own collection. They are very easy to make but also very pretty. I decorated some as the recipe called for with sprinkles & I decorated some with the opposite color chocolate drizzled over the dipped chocolate. I think these are my new favorite Christmas cookies!
