Yesterday I got to try out a cookie press for the first time ever! It's the type of gadget I've always eyed with both horror and fascination. Who would use this and why? But I couldn't pass up a brand new, in-the-package, Pampered Chef cookie press I found earlier this year for a grand total of 4.99! Good bargains make me do crazy things.
With Christmas approaching and neighbors dropping by with baked goods, I decided I needed to reciprocate. The boys were excited to 'help' and I figured if the press was a flop, we could roll and cut our own cookies. Overall, I was impressed with the look of the few that did work but wasn't able to get them to stick to the stone consistently. I did read that the dough should be warm and the stone should be cold. Any other tips from you cookie pressers?
The boys had fun with the sprinkles anyway...sprinkles, sprinkles everywhere.
