Wilton Classic Spritz Cookies

Prepare these rich and buttery, classic holiday cookies in winter shapes like Christmas trees and snowflakes. Add food coloring to some of the dough before baking. Or add spinkles, jimmies or other decorations while the cookies are still warm to create different kinds! Then once you get the basic Classic Spritz Cookie down, make all sorts of flavors! Try making the Cinnamon Apple Butter variety, or perhaps whip up a batch of Chocolate ones!

Bake your own, snap some pics, and share using #ACMooreInspired.
