MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 21, 2012

I used to make spritz every Christmas, using my Swedish grandma's recipe. This year is the first year she's not here and I had lost her recipe. This one is almost identical to hers and the cookies turned out really good. I had to refrigerate them for a while though, because they got too soft and then I had to warm them up just a bit to get them softened again. Will definitely be making these again next Christmas!

I placed 1/4 of a cherry and green sprinkles to the cookies before baking. This worked fine. An excellent recipe-the batter works well in a cookie press.
