Rated 2 out of 5 by from Internet format is awful I would love this recipe if I could see it all on one page. This page isn't mobile friendly and when I tried to print it I get the instructions or the ingredient list but I can't get both in the same page. Too confusing too many buttons that don't do anything. Make it simpler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Classic recipe! Just finished making 2 recipes: Wilton Lemon Spritz and Wilton Classic Spritz. Although both are good, the Lemon is best. Following the recipe exactly didn't produce super-lemoney cookies, in fact, the lemon was very subtle. But, even when overcooked and nearly black on the bottom, the lemon spritz were excellent. Cooked at 350F, but MUST watch at 7 minutes and adjust time in 1-3 minute increments thereafter!!! Each batch must be uniform (same) because each batch will require more or less minutes to cook. Personally, I like them best with a little extra browning around the edges rather than "just barely brown". These work best with the Wilton Ultra Pro II cookie press. I tried making the classic recipe with a 1M tip and piping bag, and they lost definition.
