I already have a good lemon spritz recipe (here's the link for my recipe for Lemon Spritz) but this one sounds really, really good -- as Andy Griffith might have said, "Extra good!" You press the dough into strips using the bar plate and cut it into squares, then dip the baked cookies diagonally into melted dark chocolate and sprinkle with lemon sugar. If you have ever had, from a box of nice chocolates, a dark chocolate with a lemon cream filling inside, you can imagine how good this flavor combination would be in a cookie. The cookies are very attractive, as well. I like the idea of the lemon sugar sprinkled on top.
Pressed cookies are so quick and easy, producing loads of pretty cookies with very little effort. In recent years, Mr. T has been the cookie baker in our Christmas kitchen, and has made simple multicolor spritz cookies. But I am going to wrest the cookie press out of his hands to try this one!
