This is a great recipe when made with a few tweaks. Having made many bathes of Spritz over he years I added a bit more liquid ingredients to this recipe. Firstly I added 2 Tbsp milk along with my vanilla & the added 2 tsp of Peppermint Extract to give these cookies a bit more flavor. For those who are finding this recipe to be a bit crumbly I'd recommend adding the 2 Tbsp of Milk as the milk will make the dough softer and easier to push though your cookie Press. As a general rule you want your dough to be soft but still somewhat firm so that the shapes will come out properly when pressed. Overall great recipe & very flavorful with the peppermint added.

I followed the recipe but these turned out pretty dry. The dough was a little tough on my cookie press too. They were tasty so I'm going to try the recipe again and make some changes in the proportions of ingredients to see if I can work it out because the recipe has potential. I just don't love them.

Easy and delicious. The chocolate flavor was stronger than anticipated which I love. Dough became too thick for the KitchenAid and stuck along the sides at the end so did that last mixing by hand. Read More
