The Ultimate Spritz — (see recipe)
1 1/4 cups pitted dates
1 cup walnut pieces
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon orange peel (grated)
2 tablespoons orange juice
Heat oven to 375º. Prepare dough for The Ultimate Spritz, using vanilla. Place remaining ingredients in food processor. Cover and process about 20 seconds, using quick on-and-off motions, until mixture is ground and resembles thick paste. Place dough in cookie press with ribbon tip. Form 10 inch ribbons about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Spoon date mixture down center of each ribbon to form 1/2 inch wide strip. Top with another ribbon of dough. Gently press edges with fork to seal. Bake 12-15 minutes or until light brown. Immediately cut ribbons into 2 inch lengths. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
