And the tradition has been passed down generation to generation! My littles love watching the "cookie gun" in action now - they are absolutely fascinated watching the cookies appear out of the cookie press!
I really like the look of sparkling sugar and snowflakes, but sprinkles and jimmies are so fun too!
I guess the secret is to just find a cookie press that works for you - Oxo makes a great one that is reasonably priced, but it is really about finding the one that just works the best for you. And most bakers will tell you that it's the cookie dough that really makes the difference between a fantastic cookie experience and a complete nightmare!
This butter cookie recipe for Spritz Cookies has ALWAYS worked well for us, and it has been passed down from generation to generation. And every time that I make them I wonder why we only make them at Christmas time, as they just the most perfect little cookie, and take little to no time at all to make!
Hope that you enjoy our family recipe as much as we do!
