Lemon-Cheese Spritz Cookies

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by DebS 2

These are from the 1969 Betty Crocker Cookbook. Be sure that the dough is well-chilled. Sprinkle with colored sugars before baking. Pretty melt-in-your-mouth cookies and lots of lemon flavor. Don't omit the lemon zest! If you use self-rising flou, omit the baking powder. Watch carefully while baking - don't let them brown!
