A cookie of holidays past: The holidays just wouldn’t be the holidays without this classic cookie in my kitchen. Spritzgebäck is a type of German Christmas biscuit made of flour, butter, sugar and eggs. The Spritz Cookie is a childhood throwback for me and a tradition that my mom would make every year for us to enjoy. Over time different shapes, colors and embellishments would appear but the conventional flavor would stay the same –– a cross between a sugar cookie and a shortbread cookie without all of the heavy lifting. Here’s a quick video to see how they are made: Spritz Cookies in the Local Savour Kitchen.

A BIG hug and thank you to everyone that joined in on the 12 Days of Holiday Cookies exchange fun this year –– I couldn’t have done it without you!

No matter what cookies you decide to bake, share, and eat … I hope you have a joyous & delicious holiday season!
