These were good but something went wrong. I think it might have been my fault (my flour was pretty old) but my baked cookies had a tiny bit of a sour aftertaste. My butter and other ingredients were fresh, but I don't bake a lot so the flour may have been past its prime. I am unfamiliar with baking spritz cookies and it didn't say in the instructions, so I cooled my dough like I do with sugar cookies. BIG MISTAKE! If you haven't made spritz cookies before, the dough needs to be sticky so it can stick to your cookie sheet (cookie sheet has to be cold, dough warm. Once I got the dough warmed up, it went fine. I also was unaware how tiny spritz cookies are. When I was reading the reviews about how you can make 6 dozen cookies, I was astounded. Spritz are one, maybe two bites, so 6 dozen doesn't last long.
Anyway, they were good but I need to try again with fresher flour to see if the bitterness was the recipe or me. It might have also been the orange zest, but I WILL try again. Oh, and mine took EXACTLY 12 minutes to bake perfectly.
