Reviews for Holiday Spritz Cookies
"/these cookies have no leavening. I can't imagine why. They did not turn out well. They also did not rise and were hard."
"Way too much sugar and I even reduced the amount to 3/4 cup."
"I used rum in place of the rum extract and these cookies came out great. Really easy to make and very festive when dyed with red and green food coloring."
