Orange and Clove Spritz Cookies Rolled in Swedish Pearl Sugar

Buttery spritz cookies are flavored with orange and clove then rolled in adorable Swedish pearl sugar to give it a pretty presentation.

Cinnamon and clove is a popular holiday scent, but how does it rate when it comes to cookie taste? Excellent, as it turns out.

These little gems are addictive, I tell ya. Perfect with coffee and loved by adults and kids alike. I haven’t tried using any other types of sugar in place of the Swedish pearl sugar, so if you happen to substitute that with something else, please let us know how it turned out. Enjoy!
