Classic Spritz Cookies are an easy way to add variety to a tray of cookies. A cookie press lets you change disks to produce many different shapes. Serve them plain, sprinkled with decorations or sugars, frosted or dipped in melted candy!

Quick Tip: Before making the dough, place your cookie sheets in the freezer. Cold cookie sheets cause the cookies to quickly release from your cookie press.
