I found this at www.proctorsilex.com. I lost the recipe book for my super shooter plus years ago and found that regular spritz cookie recipes don't work in it!. I haven't yet tried this one yet, but will soon. I hope to add a few drops each of orange flavoring and yellow and red food coloring. I used to make a flower cookie with a "red hots" candy center that was so cute and always got compliments.
