For my birthday my grandma gave me a cookie press, she knows my passion for baking. Since I never made cookies with a cookie press before, I went with a basic recipe. Since one recipe makes 40 cookies, and I don't have a family of 5 to eat them, I shared them at work. So many people commented on how the cookies reminded them of the holidays when they were younger.
What You Need:
A Cookie Press
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/14 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl on medium speed. Add flour, salt, egg and almond extract.
Place the dough in the cookie press and place on the cookie sheet. Bake 5-8 minutes.
Watch out, the edges can brown very quickly.
Immediately remove cookies from the cookie sheet and decorate.
