Peanut Butter Spritz Cookies 5 5 1 1
Great tasting spritz cookie! I've never made spritz cookies before, but I've tasted the ones that come in those little tins every Christmas so I had an idea of what to expect. I knew going into this that they are a dry cookie which made me nervous as I was mixing up the dough. The recipe calls for 5 tsp of water and as I was mixing, I started second guessing my interpretation of "tsps". The dough mixes dry but when you place it in the spritz gun, it's much more malleable (and my house is very dry right now). It went on the cookie sheets very nicely (once I figured out that there is a right and wrong way to put the disks in the spritz gun) and baked very well. They taste fantastic and as far as spritz cookies are concerned, they are "moist". The recipe didn't crumble once cooled and the sugar sprinkles stayed on quite well. This recipe will go in my recipe box for next Christmas! December 11, 2011
