Random cute food today: cookies! These cookies have so many different names but I’m going to go with Spritz cookies at the moment because that’s what my recipe said.

I’m not going to bother posting the full recipe because I didn’t change anything when doing it. You can find the recipe on the Wilton website here.

It’s pretty much just a matter of adding the correct ingredients to your mixer until it turns into dough anyway.
Then the fun part happens: Cookie press! I have had this for years but have never found a way to get the recipe perfect. This one finally is the right consistency!
They didn’t come out completely the same which I think is more user error than anything really >_>
But not bad either for a first try!
Then into the oven to bake for a little while then cool down completely.
I tried to double press the bottom one so he’s a little chunky >_>
Yummmmm…
I then mixed up a batch of royal icing and coloured it.
This was pretty much about practicing my non-existent piping skills and I think I improved a lot just in this time frame!
The one thing I don’t have is stamina, my hands get so sore after about 10 minutes of using something as thick as royal icing that I needed to take a break!
Plus side, they were seriously delicious!
Yum yum yum yum! This was a really fun way to spend an afternoon and I want to make cookies again soon so I can practice even more icing. Next time I think I will try flat sugar cookies and ice proper designs onto them. What kinds of cookies do you like? Do you have a favourite recipe I should try?
