Spritz Cookies Recipe

These simple and delicious spritz cookies have been our favorites for very long time. Haven’t bake these for a while though, so long, that my crew started complaining. Yes, the simplest is always the best and we all love simple cookies, especially these buttery spritz cookies.

I don’t know why people bake spritz cookies mostly during Christmas time, for us these are just like regular sweets that I’d bake anytime, to enjoy with my coffee or tea, as for kids, they’d eat these at no time.

Hope you enjoy it and happy baking!
