i finally had the time to make them!!!! i used the recipe sierracook gave me, and i need to give you the biggest THANK YOU!!!!!!! these cookies were sooooooooooooo gooooooood and soft and oh my gosh SO GOOD!! everyone loved them so much and i was so happy!! they were so buttery n they were already smelling really good before i even baked them. my house smells so goood. omg thank you SO much! i dont think i'll ever use another recipe for spritz hahah. well maybe some different flavor, not just plain butter.

but i wonder... how can i make the cookie look less "pale"? maybe brush a little bit of egg on the top before i bake them? thanks!

hirokei, I stir in a few drops of food coloring during the mixing process. Or I sprinkle them with colored sugar before baking. Glad that to see that they turned out well for you.

Hirokei, they look so pretty! How creative to put M & Ms in the middle. I would have never thought of that!!!

My grandmother and I just had this same conversation and she pulled out this sheet of old paper that had different tips and such; it said that when making spritz cookies, use your butter right out of the fridge. Do not soften it first. It made a heck of a difference for me! Good luck.

Also something else my grandmother swears by is that the cookie sheets must be chilled when making spritz cookies.
