I haven’t seen red velvet spritz, so I decided to created them. The hint of cocoa make them taste like the real cake. Try adding peppermint flavoring.—Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, CO

"This may be the best spritz cookie I've ever made. I substituted almond extract for the optional peppermint extract. The dough was a good consistency for use with a cookie press, unlike many of the recipes I've tried. However, I got nowhere near 8 dozen cookies. Maybe I have a larger press, but I only got about 4 dozen."
