These recipe for the Spritz Cookie batter could be easily adapted to fit any holiday. The recipe talks about making them sandwich cookies with white chocolate, but I decided to dip them in semi-sweet chocolate and then holiday themed sprinkles. (Melted in the microwave: 1/8 tsp vegetable oil per 0.5 cup of chocolate chips. Stir frequently.)
To achieve the orange color in the batter, I used 8 drops of red food coloring and 16 drops of yellow food coloring.
The cookies before decoration
At the time when I was making these cookies, I did not have a cookie press. Therefore I used a ziplock bag with a hole cut out of the end to create the shape of these cookies.
My "Cookie Press" used for these cookies. Now I own a real one so next time the shapes might be a little more interesting!
Halloween sprinkles made the perfect final touch to these cookies. I used all (with the exception of the eyeball sprinkles, those I used for another baking project.)
These cookies have a light and delicate flavor. Keith found the taste a bit boring, but I personally LOVED the taste. Will you try this Halloween cookie recipe out?
