Cinnamon Heart Spritz Cookies (or any disc shape)

Don't put the cookie press away folks! How about whipping up some Cinnamon Heart Spritz Cookies for Valentine's Day this year. This is a very nice cookie, a crisp shortbread consistency, and perfect with a cup of tea or coffee. You'll most likely notice the almond extract when first baked, but then as they have a day or two to sit the cinnamon will shine through:@) I used the Oxo heart disc with my Kuhn Rikon press, that really does seem to be my favorite cookie press. 
  • This turned out to be a pretty thick batter, I did add 1/2 tsp warm water, aim for it feel more like Play Dough. 
  • It held it's shape well and didn't spread much.
  • I added about 7 drops of red food coloring for a half batch.
  • I might let the dough be it's natural color and just use a pretty pink sanding sugar with the red candy center next time.

  1. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
