Winter has truly arrived and part of the fun of this time of year is baking cookies. My family’s must-have cookie is my Grandmother’s Almond-flavored Spritz. My brother is our master spritz maker. His personal touch is to double the almond extract in the recipe and then add a little more. We pass around the bottle of almond extract, so each of us can get a whiff of that sublime elixir. While the cookies are baking the whole house smells divine.
