Recipe by elf-hunter

Simple recipe for spritz cookies that can be used for any cookie press. Different extracts can be used to flavor the cookies-almond, vanilla, orange, mint, anything you like! Almond is always a favorite for the holidays.

Worked great in my Wilton Cookie press. I followed the recipe as written. My husband thought they could be a little more favorful, but I thought they were fine. Next time I may add a little more flavoring. Thank you for sharing.
