My mother always made spritz cookies for every holliday. This recipe combinds that tradition with a modern influence of mine.
Enjoy for Christmas, New Years or Valentine's Day!

5Remove cookies onto wire rack to cool completely

Crush or grind peppermints in food processor to a crumb and place on a plate for final garnish
