Super Shooter Basic Spritz Cookies

"I found this at 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."

I am the mother of three (one grown, one in middle school and one in high school). I have grandchildren who we invite over regularly to spend the night. We have lots of fun and a very full house! I do all of the baking and my husband cooks all the dinners. He loves to BBQ and cook and he is GOOD at it! He is wonderful with the children and I appreciate him so! I enjoy gardening, crafts, sewing, and crocheting, pets, and all kinds of "kid fun". If I had a month off I would spend it somewhere on the coast with just my sweetie and a view of the sea. I would miss the kids terribly so I would have them visit us in the hotel (that of course has room service) on Thursdays,Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays for swimming, walks, beach-combing, dune climbing and dune buggy rides, movies, church, and the hottub!
