I had the Grandaughters over to help with the Spritz sugar cookies. So easy to make and no hassle we added red, green and blue food coloring for making trees, stars and snowflakes. Great way to make family baking traditions simple to start to get the kids going. Pick up a package of sugar cookie mix and get started for some holiday fun!! Our Next cookie will be the Toll house Chocolate mint chips!!

I always enjoy baking, but I forget to take the simple way when possible. I will definately be doing this in the future. You can always learn something new.

Grandson's Delight

I have two grandsons (ages 2 & 4)that love to come to my house. I did these cookies with them and they had a ball. These mixes make this a joy to do with the little ones. You get right to the "good stuff" and they feel like they have done "home made".

Average spritz cookie

This recipe doesn't remind me of the spritz cookie. I added a teaspoon or so of almond extract to the dough. It gave a more original flavor.

I have to agree, I prefer the homemade version of these. I dont care for sugar cookies, but do understand for those that do like them, it can make baking easier for you.
