I did have some heat issues today. No matter what I did it was just so hot in the kitchen by the time I was to the last ones they were really spreading out on the pan (even after putting the pan in the freezer for a minute to cool them off). Of course by the time I was on the last cookies much of the dough was mistake dough that was going through the press a second time so that didn't help any. But I still had plenty that turned out well enough that I am not ashamed to enter them.
All I have to say is it is a good thing I have friends who are my butter suppliers since this recipe alone took out almost a pound (the recipe was doubled so that didn't help any). Don't know how I'd survive without their annual butter gift each year! It's good to know Wisconsin dairy farmers : ) thanks Leigh and Dave! Of course, I am sure there are some people that would say they're just enabling my habit!
I don't know about any of you but I always think Christmas when it comes to Spritz cookies. At least my Grandma Clark always made a large batch or two of these at the holidays. I decided to mix it up a bit and gave these a citrus spin and pressed them in flowers and butterflies with purple sugar on some and others plain. Once again I managed 2 classes in one day with one recipe! Sweet (really)! One for the cookie division and one for the holiday exchange division in the Other than Christmas class. I think I'll make a tray of spring/Easter type cookies for this exchange tray class (so one type down for that - need at least one other cookie type to put with it).
