Mamie Eisenhower's Favorite Spritzboaken

“These yummy spritz cookies are said to be our former first-lady's favorite spritz recipe. They are just a little different from the usual, although I personally cannot pinpoint why. Probably just the way all the good ingredients combine. But they are delicious and you'll like them, too. This recipe makes a lot of cookies; I'm guessing at the yield.”
