Brown sugar gives these spritz cookies a lovely light caramel tint. This variation has a rich buttery shortbread taste and texture with a hint of orange flavor. They are a delightful addition to my holiday cookie tray. -Sean Fleming, St. Charles, Illinois

"For Psalm 127-3: Try a Cuisinart Electric cookie Press. I've made cookies for 30 years and gone thru about half a dozen different brands. I had an electric one for my first try into spritz cookies. When it went out I used different manual ones and was not really pleased until I found this Cuisinart at a kitchen shop where I live. It gives me perfect cookies every time as long as you follow the directions that come with the press. My 2 boys ask for these every year. I've just branched into recipes that didn't come with the manual. The cream cheese added to the dough are delicious. Hope this helps."

"I just made these and the flavor is simply wonderful. I gave a 4 star as the yield is 1/2 the amount specified. My total was: 2 1/2 - 3 dozen. i would have doubled the recipe if I would have known the yield would be so small."
