Peanut Butter Spritz Cookies is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My grandchildren wanted to use the new cookie press. One wanted chocolate cookies and one wanted peanut butter cookies. So we did both. One mixed the chocolate and one the peanut butter. Then we twisted ropes of dough together before loading the press. This gave a lot of fun and resulted in some interesting designs and a very tasty cookie with a tender-chrisp texture. I will say the peanut dough was a little stiff, but I just added a bit of water to soften it. My grandchildren ages 8 and 10 used the manual press and had no trouble pressing the cookies.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I was really excited to see a peanut butter spritz cookie. I am disappointed. The dough is very stiff. It would no go through my cookie press that is battery operated. I had to use the old manual press. Even with this it was difficult to get the dough the press. When I finally did get the cookies made, they crumble very easily. It will be hard to mix them into a cookie tray because they break apart so easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just made these cookies with my cookie press and they turned out delicious!! I had added a little extra peanut butter since a lot of reviews said the dough got too hard. I also don't think I added a full cup and a half of flour. Cookies were done in 5 1/2 minute PERFECT. Let them cool and enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed them. I was apprehensive when I saw all the reviews stating the dough was hard to work with (I have arthritis) but I increased the peanut butter to 2/3 of a cup and the dough was fantastic. On the plus side they were also extra peanut buttery, yum! :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Come on Wilton. Get with the program. Solid vegetable shortening? That's transfat. They don't even put that on potato chips any more. I haven't used any solid vegetable shortening in years (except to grease a pan). Down with partially hydrogenated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have to agree with the reviewers who note the dough is VERY hard to work with. I actually broke the hinge on the cookie press (I used the "beginner" press--the plastic, manually-operated one)! I would recommend the following alterations for those wishing to make these cookies: 1) Add a few tablespoons of peanut oil or even a little milk to the batter to thin it out a little. I've found it's actually better if the batter is a little thinner rather than too hard; the cookies will spread out more, but then you just press less per cookie. 2) ONLY use the battery-operated press, as I found the cookies took "1 1/2 clicks" on a manual press--it's easier to get the cookies consistent on the power press. 3) Tastiness is an issue with this cookie; however, it's a good dipping cookie--use the chocolate or vanilla or even peanut butter candy melts and just dip the bottoms. That also makes them less prone to crumbling during storage. 4) Another way to help out with the tastiness and consistency is to substitute Nutella or some other nut butter for the peanut butter. Nothin' like Nutella cookies!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The peanut butter spritz cookies were delicious. I love peanut butter cookies anyway and it was fun to give them new shape. I will definately use this recipe again.
