Remember this: Patti’s got a gun? I revisited the Spritz cookie recipe for Vanillekranse (vanilla wreaths). This time no lemon zest, but with extra vanilla and bits of candied cherries. And definitely the gun. Aren’t they pretty? Surprisingly, they were easy to make. And they tasted buttery and delicious. I might have to make them again for the holidays. What’s that you asked? Of course they’re gone already! Who could resist Danish Christmas cookies in October!
That’s right, I said October. I know it’s nearly mid-November, but I haven’t baked any cookies since before Halloween. I haven’t written yet about a couple of them, and I’ll get to those. A day at a time has been about all I can do for the past few weeks. The darkness has been a little more difficult for me to take this year. But I’m working on it. Promise.
