This was my 1st try @ Spritz cookies. The batter was nice & workable. I would only change adding a little more vanilla for flavor. But they turned out nice

Having trouble getting the corn strop to dry so I can put the cookies away. Next time I will sprinkle before baking like I used to.

I think the dough is a great consistency for using in a cookie press. The cookies have good flavor, too. At one point, the dough started "misbehaving". I chilled it for about 10 minutes, after which things worked well.

These are not dry if you make them right. I like to cook mine at the low end of the suggested time - they turn out great!
