My remember my mother always making spritz cookies, especially at Christmas. I "found" this picture of a vintage cookie press--and I believe that is the same one my mother had! It's amazing how certain memories years and years later never leave your head. There was always little green Christmas "tree" cookies. I loved them.
So tonight, with my little helper at my side, we made Valentine's cookies!
I used one of my favorite antique bowls from my grandmother. It's perfect for baking. We made several different styles, but my favorite were the pink heart cookies :)
Before baking . . .
And after. . . Now, I will have to distribute them to several places, because I cannot keep 8 dozen cookies in my house :)
Now--go do something you enjoy :)
