Quick Mix Spritz25 Reviews
“These cookies are mixed differently from other cookies (like pie crust) but they are the best. These are the ones I grew up on. At Christmas my mom would add almond extract and green food color then make tree pattern.” - by Sherri

"This came together so easily with the help of my food processor. (Pulse to cut in the shortening/butter add remaining ingredients and process until it comes together.) It was simple and good. Instea..." See mored of all shortening I used 1/2 cup real butter and 1/2 cup butter flavored shortening. Also I didn't level off the baking powder so it was more of a heaping 1/4 tsp. Thanks for sharing this. I don't need to look any further for a great spritz recipe."
"Definately easy to mix up. As for taste - it was o.k., but we'd rather stick with butter over shortening. My husband thought it had a "shortening aftertaste"..." See more"
