Basic Spritz Cookies

we love this recipe, but we make a change from this original one: we use either lemon or peppermint for the flavor instead of almond. it makes it a cleaner and lighter flavor. almond is great with coffee, but little ones tend to like the fruity and spicy tastes in my experience!
