Holiday cookie traditions run deep in Lauren's family. Every Christmas growing up, Lauren and her sister would bake tons of cookies with their mom. Today, we'd like to share one of these special recipes with you. Introducing ...SPRITZ COOKIES! Spritz cookies were ALWAYS their fave. Tiny Christmas Tree cookies covered in green shimmer sprinkles and petite poinsettias with dusted with red shimmer sprinkles were always the stars of their Christmas Eve dessert spread.
This year, Lauren shared this cookie tradition with her little ones. Once the kids laid eyes on Lauren's cookie press, Sam and Lily immediately started fighting over who got to use the "cookie gun" first! The kiddos absolutely loved “shooting” these special holiday cookies. We know your family will love them, too.
