Very good. The only thing wrong with this recipe - If you are wanting 96 cookies you'd better double the recipe - I have made this several times with the Pampered Chef cookie press and the most I've been able to make is about 45.
This recipe has terrific flavor, but was a NIGHTMARE in my cookie press..... it wouldn't stick to the tray (I tried a baking stone, an airbake pan and a pan lined with silpat) and wouldn't come off the press without making them huge (like 3 pumps each). I tried it chilled & fresh. But, like I said, the flavor is awesome so I may try again but alter some of the ingredients
I really liked this recipe! I thought the sweetness was just right and the flavors of the cinnamon and vanilla came together really well. I also added a little bit of dried orange zest to the dough. The only thing that I had a negative comment on was that the cookies came out slightly dry. The texture was great, but my husband commented that he needed milk after eating a couple of them. I used my new battery operated cookie press that the dough was sooooo easy to work with! I was so excited, after many failed attempts with a cookie press. Definitely a keeper and I'd appreciate if any other reviewer would comment on what I can do to help with the dryness. Thanks!
This is the best spritz cookie I have ever tasted. It just melts in your mouth great flavor. I got more complements on these than any other cookies. I took half the batch and dipped it halfway in white chocolate coating and sprinkled colored sugar on them. Thank you Diana for a great cookie.
This one got lots of rave reviews, so I tried it. My family hated them. I can't eat wheat, so I didn't try them. However, they said that they were bland and flavorless. They also said they need more sugar. I left them at church during a potluck, hoping someone would eat them.
These cookies are so good! I've made several batches of them in the past 2 weeks. Some for home, some for my husband to take to work and some for friends. Everyone LOVES these cookies! I will be including these in my cookie baskets this Christmas! YUMMY!
My only thought ~I think they NEED to have sugar sprinkled on top or they aren't quite sweet enough. We made pumpkin and leaf shapes with orange sugar. They disappeared FAST!
My six month old just loved these cookies. My older children joyed them too.
Very good and easy to make. I also added a teaspoon almond extract for a different flavor.
