31 Days of Cookies: Spritz Cookies

By: Lindsay Damast

Merry Christmas from Cooking Channel! There's no better way to celebrate the 25th day of cookies than with these classic, simple Christmas treats of German origin. Almond paste imbues the cookies with a subtle nutty flavor and makes the dough smoother — ideal for creating festive shapes in a spritz press. Sprinkle them with colored sugars to dress the plain cookies up for the holiday.
