Gluten Free Spritz Christmas Cookies


I picked up an old fashioned metal cookie press from the second hand store and couldn't wait to try making Gluten Free Spritz Christmas Cookies. They've always been a favorite of mine and it's been a long time since I had one.
I was thrilled with how they came out. They taste just like I remembered! Buttery, crisp and melt in your  mouth!Everyone's favorite remade gluten-free and they are just as delicious!
Then I made Gluten Free Russian Tea Cakes!  I love Christmas!

If you can't find an older cookie press, you might like this one at Amazon.  It has some impressive reviews. Kuhn Cookie Press (affiliate)
Your dough should be pliable, soft, but not wet, and easily inserted into the press

    1. Vanessa, you could use arrowroot starch. I would watch the dough and add a little more butter if it's dry as arrowroot can suck up liquids. Let me know how it works! xo
