Marion's Spritz Cookies

Spritz cookies have a colourful history, come in all shapes, and all of my grandchildren have taken their turns making them, while still in their preschool years. I own several Spritz guns or presses, and I love to study the history of this cookie. My favourite recipe comes to my family from Marion, my friend of 47 years.
I have recently made a pilot for television, featuring two of my grandchildren making spritz cookies. Check out a little sample at getabiggerwagon.com/...n_screen.html
