Butter Cookies II
Well, i found this recipe to be low on the taste scale. I will probably add just a little extra vanilla to it the next time. Maybe i should have refrigerated the dough like it suggested to. The oven was hot so i just baked them. I used my melon baller to drop the dough onto the cookie sheet and then I flattened them out by using my large meat tenderizer mallet...waffle print dow. It goes quick, is fun and makes a waffle pattern on the cookie. I then sprinkled some colored sugar on top of the cookie prior to baking. The waffle pattern was great for a resting place for the sugar. Oh, i put food coloring in the butter, sugar, egg mixture as I mixed it in the mixer. I wanted some holiday color. I found the baked cookie to be more doughy so perhaps I need to flatten them more the next time. I will play with this recipe again and read more of the reviews for tips. I love Spritz and I really wanted a quicker way to make them vs using the press.

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies III
This recipe has become my go-to chocolate chip recipe the past three years! I love the texture and taste and the results are perfect every time. They end up as a mound cookie vs. a round flat one but I like it. Perhaps i should flatten them with my meat tenderizer mallet....waffle pattern side down, but I don't know. I may try it. Just happy with how it goes at this time. Yummo!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
I tried this recipe. I did not add flour except to substitute the last 1/2 cup of regular white four with whole wheat flout. Whole wheat flour has bulk to it and i was happy with the results. I use a melon baller to serve up the cookie dough and then i use a large meat tenderizer mallet to flatten the cookie dough. Leaves a waffle pattern and works great! I like the cookies and would make them again
