Another Christmas cookies entry here.Well,hope it's not too late but who care as long as the cookies taste good and delicious,right? Actually this Spritz cookie recipe is from Wilton's cookies presser booklet and I adapted it to suit my convenience and taste. Since I can't operate my new cordless cookies presser,I used pipping bag to shape this cookies.Well, the result of using pipping bag to shape this cookies is not bad at all..I just need to decorate icing on the cookies after baking but I'm too lazy to do it since the cookies is really miniature small,it's take alot of time which I don't have at that precious time at that time.Hope you enjoy this recipe:)
