Potatoes. Cheesy potatoes.
Movie. Cheesy Movie.
Usually spritz cookies are made with a cookie press using a buttery cookie dough. They are bakery beautiful, and buttery yum! I love using my cookie press to make a quick batch of beautiful cookies quickly. So when I saw a recipe from Forgotten Bread, I was intrigued. A savory cracker from my handy dandy cookie press would be such a great counterpoint to all the sweets around during the holidays. I imagined them floating gracefully in my tomato soup or being eaten by the handful at football games.
These Cheese Spritz Crackers are so full of flavor! They are great on their own, terrific with soup, and so easy to make. I love easy recipes that are big on presentation and flavor. It makes me feel gourmet! I am excited to make these for my holiday treat plate and let everyone get a delicious surprise when they bite into them!
