Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

A nice spring twist on spritz cookies! I made mine with pink food coloring for Valentine's day. They were a definite hit and so cute.
I loved making these cookies they taste great and are not too sweet, and very easy to make!
