Spritz Cookies

To prepare and make sure everything is ready for the upcoming holiday season, I made some spritz cookies practicing on  the new Wilton Cookie Press Ultra Pro II. This new press works WONDERFULLY! Normally I dread making spritz cookies due to the terrible cookie presses out there, but the new Wilton Press is AMAZING!!! I was shocked how easy it is to use compared to the others and how great the cookies taste! This is my new go to holiday cookie recipe!!

    Your cookies look so cute! I have bad memories of many holiday seasons with my Mom yelling and banging her cookie press around the kitchen, so I have never bothered to try one. But I may have to check out this Wilton one.
