Instead of decorating these cookies with the traditional colored sugar or sprinkles, dip them or drizzle them with melted dark and white chocolate.
For a flavorful twist on a traditional favorite, add 1 to 2 teaspoons grated orange peel to the spritz dough.
Children enjoy remembering their teachers during the holidays with special treats such as cookies and bars. Encourage them to be creative by packaging the goodies in recycled shortening cans, coffee cans or potato chip containers. Have the children clean the containers and decorate them with festive gift wrap or paper illustrated with their own designs.
