The Ultimate Spritz
I love Spritz cookies but this dough was a little tough to work with. I don't know if it was too dry or too wet, but it wouldn't come off of the cookie press easily. I had to reload the press over and over because of the mistakes. The outcome was delicious though. Definitely going to try again. Or find another recipe. Try pecan halves on top of some. It gives a great buttery, nutty taste.

I just happened to find this recipe while looking for something else. And I am so glad I did. This will now become a regular in my cookie recipe list. I sent them to my husband deployed in Afghanistan. They were a BIG hit. They stay soft, almost like a little brownie. Plus they have a distinct look that makes them favorable to cookie trays.

Gingerbread People (Cookie Exchange Quantity)
I made the dough and chilled it overnight, then made the cookies the next night. Makes it easy if you don't have a lot of time in one night. Very easy to make. Easy to handle. If you want softer cookies, I suggest rolling them thicker. The taste is light and not overpowering.

Russian Tea Cakes
I would suggest you double the recipe. The single recipe doesn't make 4 dozen as it says. Unless they're making very small balls. If you haven't tried these, please do! They are wonderful and an old family favorite. It's hard not to eat them all before I give them away to family and friends. They always ask why I don't make more.

This recipe is super easy and quick if you're in a time crunch. They also wrap up well if you're giving or sending them as a present. Great tasting and and they stay soft if you don't cook them too long. Add two minutes if you like them a little crunchy.%0d%0a%0d%0aI'll continue to make these every season. My husband deployed in Afghanistan loves them. Only problem, he won't share them.
