Christmas Tree Peanut Butter Spritz Cookies drizzled with chocolate.
Christmas Tree Peanut Butter Spritz Cookies. I love making spritz cookies during the Christmas season. These cookies along with several others are being mailed out as gifts this week.
You can leave these as plain peanut butter spritz cookies or use some melting chocolate to drizzle over the tops. Ghirardelli Chocolate Melting Wafers (amazon affiliate) are one of our favorites to use or you can use any melting chocolate you prefer.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies. You will need a cookie press (amazon affiliate link) to make these and a Christmas tree disk.
