Grandma's Spritz Cookies

One of my fondest memories was baking these cute little Christmas Spritz Cookies with my grandmother.  She had one of those old fashioned twist cookie gagets and we would spend hours twisting them out.  I think we ate more than we ended up with.  It was such a sweet time spent with her and I think about her all the time especially during this time of year.  Now I have one of the cookie presses made by Wilton and I love pressing out all those delicate, buttery bites of heaven.  Spruced up with royal icing, some non-pariels and dragees and you've got a wonderful little gift for sweet giving.
