I really wasn’t planning on baking spritz cookies this year. I’ve made them several times already, and they aren’t exactly the most flavorful cookie around. A big plus for spritz cookies is that you get a ton of them from one recipe, which is handy if you’ve got plenty of cookie eaters around, and they are pretty which makes them a good choice for gift baskets.
I got Food Network’s December issue last month, and found this recipe. Honey Spritz Cookies sounded good to me, they were definitely going to taste better than the regular kind, I thought. I was right. The added honey makes them bake to a deeper caramel color than you would get from the regular kind, and you do taste and smell the honey in there. These would probably taste even better if you drizzle melted semi-sweet chocolate on top… if you have the time. I opted for a sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon.
