Chocolate Dipped Spritz Cookies for Valentine’s Day

Chocolate Dipped Spritz Cookies for Valentine's Day

For some reason I always have thought my Wilton Cookie Press was a Christmas cookie press… only.  Why haven’t I branched out to other holidays???  Because let’s face it.  These are adorable.

Chocolate Dipped Spritz Cookies for Valentine's Day

Thank you to Baby Living Mama for this idea.  The recipe is the same as the recipe on my Wilton Cookie Press box.  The one difference was the coking time and temperature.  Wilton says to cook them in a 400 degree oven for 6-8 minutes.  Emilie baked hers in a 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.  You chose, but I decided to cook them for the shorter amount of time.  I didn’t want super crunchy cookies.

Aren’t they fun for Valentine’s Day?
