These fun gluten-free cookies are synonymous with the season. The pliable dough makes lovely shapes that you can decorate before or after baking. In German, spritzen means “to squirt,” which is exactly how you make these cookies. This recipe can be made with egg replacement; see instructions below. For Egg-Free Spritz Cookies, omit 1 egg. Combine 1½ teaspoons Ener-G egg replacer with 1 tablespoon water (or enough water to make a paste). Use this mixture to replace the egg in step 2.
