When I tried my hand mixer it bogged down and quit within 15 seconds, and my arm gave out trying to mix the dough by hand. This year I am armed and ready! I even bought the green and red sugar crystals to decorate. These cookies are not real sweet, but light and delicious. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
    I always have to make 3 batches of spritz cookies...one batch goes to my Mom and Dad....this was her signature cookie before RA made her hands not work....

    Mention of lace cookies reminds me of this old time idea, which I have never tried, but which looks possible. I have tried to draw it up in Paint, so bear with me. I hope you can make sense of it. I can't remember if they had halos. I guess you could use yellow frosting for that. Any recipe I've seen for forming shapes out of lace cookies say that you may have to reheat them briefly when they start to get too stiff to work. I never had the patience, but wanted to pass this along in case anyone else does.

    I had forgotten about my cookie gun until you girls started talking about it. I used to have a press many years ago but "loaned" it to a friend and never got it back. I am sure you know how that goes... LOL. This one is really old metal one by wear ever. It is easier to use and is made kinda like a caulk gun. But oh my, can you ever get a tom of cookies finished quilcky. It has a dial that you can make them different thicknesses too.

    I am gonna get that out and make some. Thanks for the reminder!

    I will make some spice angels too from my brown bag cookie press angel. Oh now I am excited girls... Thanks!
