Chip-Carved Spritz Cookies



My dad is a wonderful wood carver (I posted some of his works here, here, here, here, and here).  While he could defnitely make money selling his carvings, he does it only as a hobby.  He always makes the most gorgeous things.


Several years ago, he gave me this hand-carved cookie press, created with the "chip carving" process. It is my absolute favorite kind of wood carving he does and I just love the intricate designs.

The cookie press works the best for Spritz (Butter) Cookies, because they don't blow up and lose the designs when they're cooked. Aren't they gorgeous??
