Eggnog and rum give this spritz cookie a unique flavor that is enhanced by the rum glaze.
Cookie Press Cookies
A cookie press is used to force cookies through a disk with a hole in the center of it, giving the cookie a shape such as a wreath, a star, a heart, etc. You can also use a cookie press to create long ribbons of cookie that can then be sliced. The majority of vintage cookie press recipes are the classic Spritz cookie from Germany, so it is thought that this tool was a German invention. This inexpensive tool can be purchased at any kitchen store or retailers such as Amazon. You can find vintage cookie presses on eBay or Etsy. Read my review of The Best Cookie Press.
