I love to make spritz cookies. Each year I make several varieties of cookies and then deliver them to friends. I love to see the smiles on their faces when they see a plate full of cookies.—Margaret Otley, Waverly, Nebraska

"Good taste, and easy to make. Next time I will put a chocolate chip in the center instead of the peppermint crumbs."

"i don't know what went wrong, but this recipe didn't work for me! I followed the directions exactly. First, the dough is way too soft even with adding more flour. Then the cookies spread far too much when baked, losing all the shape of the press...I ended up with brown flat lumps. They are neither chocolaty or minty, actually rather blah. The only mint taste is from the crushed candies. The best I can say is that they are very easy to make! Glad they worked for others!"

"These cookies are wonderful! The dough is easy to work with and the cookies are delicious! I doubled the recipe and ended up with 10 dozen cookies to share with family and friends."
