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

"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."
