This is a tasty lightly lemon spritz cookie. My family enjoyed them. I made them as written subbing gluten free flour. If I were to make them again I would drizzle with white chocolate and sprinkle with yellow sugar. Read More

i grew up making spritz cookies. there is no need to use a mixer, its super easy and quick to just put on some gloves and mix by hand. you can feel the sugar and flours incorporate and it takes less time than to put together the mixer. i usually make 2 batches at once, but this time i made one. i have a new cookie press, and its been a while so i forgot the #1 trick to cookie press, do not overfill the cookie press tube, make sure there is room for the plunger smells wonderful baking Read More
