Reviews for Swedish Spritz Cookies
"This is the same recipe I got from someone back in 1968! Except it calls for 1 cup shortening instead of butter. Makes a great spritz dough. Very easy to work with in the cookie press."
"Very easy. Delicious cookie. Easy to make."
"depending on humidity... might want to lessen the flour or add more! Very tasty and held together well out of my antique cookie press.... very happy with this recipe!"
