12 Days of Christmas Cookies, Day 8: Peppermint Spritz - Easy to Make With a Cookie Press
Then name comes from the German verb spritzen, which means “to squirt” or “to spray.” Quite literally, you “squirt” cookie dough through a cookie press which has fitted disks on the end to produce formed shapes.
You can press this peppermint-flavored dough through traditional disk shapes such as star, dog, or tree. But you may want to try this version with the ribbon star, pressed into strips, with one end bent into a crook to form a candy cane.
