    Fit heart template in cookie press; fill cookie press with dough. Place pretzels onto lightly floured surface. Force dough through template on top of flat, bottom end of each pretzel twist (two rounds at top of pretzel will form the antlers). Press 2 baking bit at upper part of heart to make eyes, and 1 chocolate chip to make nose on each reindeer. Place reindeer on ungreased cookie sheet.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you don't have a cookie press, shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Press 1 ball over bottom of 1 pretzel, pinching bottom in to form nose.
  • tip 2
    These cookies get their name from the word "spritzen," which is German for "to squirt or spray."
