Spritz cookies (or cookie gun cookies as we call them) have been a family tradition for over 50 years. My mom grew up making these cookies, I grew up making these cookies, and now they are a favorite of my children. I recently purchased this vintage Wear-Ever cookie gun - mint in the box! It was very similar to the one my mother had when she was little. I love just staring at the box :)
My first cookie gun was this white one from Kuhn Rikon. I loved it. It finally died from over use. So I purchased the Wilton one.
Here is my favorite spritz cookie recipe. It's buttery with a hint of almond. I love making these cookies at Christmas but they are also fun at Valentine's Day and the perfect size for Tea Parties!
