Recently, my go-to cookie has been a simple, chocolate spritz cookie. It’s surprising because my cookie press had been gathering dust in a remote cabinet for years.
I rediscovered this helpful baking tool when I wanted to make cookies in a hurry. By using a cookie press, you can press out shapes without having to go through the lengthier process of chilling the dough, rolling it, cutting out cookies and rerolling the scraps to recut more.
These are crisp, chocolaty cookies that aren’t too sweet. They’re tiny, so you don’t have to worry about overindulging.
So, for Valentine’s Day my granddaughter and I made some chocolate spritz cookies after preschool. We’re going to package small handfuls in cellophane bags, tie each bag with a bow, and give them as gifts, along with a homemade Valentine card.
