  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease or line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cream the butter in a mixing bowl until light colored and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla until smooth. Add food coloring, if desired. Gradually mix in the confectioners' sugar, flour, and salt to make a smooth dough.
  3. Place dough into cookie press cylinder fitted with 1 inch sawtooth ribbon disk. Press dough into long strips on prepared cookie sheets. Use a paring knife dipped into flour to score the strips every two inches.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until edges are slightly golden, about 6 minutes. Remove from oven, cool slightly, and cut along score lines while they are still warm. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt white chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler placed over medium heat, or in the microwave. Add food coloring, if desired. Spread white chocolate icing on the bottom of one cookie and place the bottom of a second cookie into the icing to form a sandwich. Place cookie sandwich onto prepared baking sheet. Repeat to assemble remaining cookies, and refrigerate on the baking sheet 10 minutes to set icing. Remove and dip ends of cookies into white chocolate, then into candy sprinkles. Place cookies on wax paper until white chocolate is set.

Easy to make, but just so-so for taste, but then I am not a big white chocolate fan. They look cute, so I might try them again at Christmas with a plain (no food coloring added) cookie and dark chocolate or mint chocolate chips. I only had a 2 inch ribbon disk in my cookie press kit, which turned out to be too big. If I made them again, I would try and find a smaller disk to pipe the dough with. Also, you will need 2 small bottles of sprinkles to dip all the cookies in. One in definitely not enough.

Super cute! It did take a long time to decorate so plan on more prep time. I did not use enough food coloring so next time I will do 3 red drops and 15 yellow to get it the right color of orange.


This is probably the best spritz I've ever made. Since I was making it for Halloween, I split the dough in half and dyed one half bright orange and the other a deep purple. When assembling them, I made all the cookies half orange, half purple. I then used bright green sprinkles. They turned out beautiful. For those who think they're a little rich or too sweet, try not dipping them into the white chocolate and sprinkles after they're assembled. They're great just as a standard sandwich cookie. I used the advice from some of the reviewers to increase the sugar and I think it helped the taste. These are wonderful and versatile for any holiday. Will try with dark chocolate next time for Christmas.
