A coworker of mine made these long ago as part of a cookie swap and we've enjoyed them ever since.These are the perfect variation to the original
"Spritz" cookie press cookie,but with a hint of peppermint flavor! They're a nice and pretty addition to any cookie tray!!We often bake other cookies while this dough is chilling,so the hour or so passes quickly!And I often make several doughs up to a wk or ahead,wrap in Saran Wrap and take it out to bake when we want!Saves time!Enjoy!
