I love making spritz cookies with a cookie press. They are so simple to whip together. The best part is that in one click, you have a pretty design stuck to your cookie sheet. No rolling out or digging through the drawer of cookie cutters. I love using cookie cutters, but I’ll be honest. I’m severely lacking in the counter space.
Of course, I make it work because a dessert and baking blog without some kind of roll out cookies sounds pretty tragic. Plus, I have a billion cookie cutters. It’s important to me that I at least use them once or twice.
You can also color the cookie dough. I wanted to do my spiders black, but I used up the last of my black gel paste color and forgot to replace it. I was also thinking of doing different flavors for the OXO Autumn disk set. Actually, I only have one flavor in mind and it’s chocolate for the cute little turkey. Oh, and maybe pumpkin spice for the pumpkins.
Guys! My son has finally gone back to school. I feel like that heartless parent. Everyone is posting how sad they are that their child is headed back to school and I’m celebrating that I get a minute of peace and quiet. Don’t get me wrong, I love Lucian with every single piece of my heart, but mama needs a break to catch up on work. Plus, he gets our new dog wound up to the max and it’s like having two super hyper 6-year-old kids running around the house leaping off the couch and such.
