Mmmmmm! Sounds similar to the p.b. Austrian Sprtiz I used to put through my cookie press. I so fondly remember, especially at Christmas, my sweet G'ma Jahnke turning that hand-cranked cookie press a ba-zillion times, to make us 100s of delightful Spritz cookies. That's love! TFS this mmmm sounding recipe.

These cookies have a delicious flavor and wonderful texture! It has been a family favorite for years! Enjoy!!
