The cookies are delicious. There are 2 comments that I think are important to mention. First, the dough is gooey but if you take a piece of wax paper and put a large glob on it and then use the wax paper to make a log, it is then easy to insert dough into the tube. Continue with the remaining dough. The recipe says the yield is 48 cookies, I made 88 with this recipe.

It is the best cookie ever. Great if you have one of the antique Mirro Cookie Presses that are copper and aluminum from the 1950's and 60's. The pack well for travel and can be decorated many ways.

I make spritz cookies every Christmas and for weddings, baby showers, etc. This was my first time using crushed candy canes to top my spritz cookies. They were delicious. My husband especially loved them. He would have eaten them all if I'd let him!

These were so easy to make and I loved the fact that the batter did not require any refrigeration. I did not have the time to crush the peppermint on top and they still tasted great. If you like peppermint then this is the recipe for you. My DD could even do this one!
