Raspberry Sandwich Spritz

 Raspberry Sandwich Spritz
I started baking these Christmas classics when I was a sophomore in high school...and I and still making them now for my grown children and grankids. The combination of jam, buttery shortbread, chocolate and sprinkles adds up to a fancy and festive treat.
