    I am looking for a good Spritzer cookie recipe. I bought the cookie spritzer years ago and while cleaning cupboards this past weekend found it. I completely forgot about it! Are all recipes the same? See how clueless I am?!?! [​IMG]

    Thank you Chickenaddict! I have searched for recipes on the internet many times and have had good luck in finding ones that were good, but I just wanted to see if my trusty BYC'ers knew of any tried and true recipes first. [​IMG] I trust you all way more than I trust a stranger on the internet. [​IMG] Thanks again!

    Chickenaddict, that's the recipe I use for my spritzer, the only thing different for my ritual is I put 1/2 tsp of almond flavor in the dough. It's almost too yummy.

    Maybe make 1/2 batch regular and try 1/2 batch with the almond flavoring? [​IMG]
