Recipe Comments & Reviews

I make this recipe every Christmas. I love it. I add alittle almond extract also to give it a different flavor!! Love me some Kelly Ripa cookies all the time!!
I cut this recipe from a magazine years ago and made them EVERY Christmas. Then the recipe disappeared! Hooray--found it! The best spritz cookies EVER- and so easy and never fail!
Loved this recipie. The dough wasn't sticky and came out of the press easily. Cookies were also buttery and flaky. Yummy.
I like this recipe better then the one that came in my Spritz cookie press kit. Make a double batch, they go quick!
I have tried Spritz cookies before and I am a big fan of them, however, I found this recipe to taste extremely buttery and very bland. I will definitely use a different recipe next year.
Excellent recipe! Last year I couldn't find my mom's butter cookie recipe that has been handed down for generations so I checked online for a similar one. I came across this one and realized it was the same EXACT recipe that our family has used for years! Make sure you use real butter in these. They taste like Christmas to me!
