Kitchen Tip : Cookie Press

Need a baked Christmas goody for a gift or party? Well, you could buy all the ladies on your list a cookie press- or you could buy one for yourself and make dozens of frugal cookies for everyone on your list!

My dd and I made these cute little butter cookies today. (I call them butter and not sugar, because they have more butter than sugar! Oh so yummy!)
They were made very quickly and easily with a cookie press.
No rolling and cutting and rolling again!
The press makes the cookies look like something right out of those Christmas tins.

I plan to buy some cute sugars, etc to decorate some for Christmas. It is one of our traditions, to make and decorate a big batch of Christmas cookies!

The press enables you to make a very neat cookie for gift-giving.
We have some new neighbors and I told DH that I would like to make them some of these soon as a house-warming/Christmas gift.
I love making cut cookies- but a press helps keep all the cookies more uniform so they bake more evenly and then there's that rolling, cutting, rolling, cutting thing... which can be totally skipped with a press! ;-)

(We did put some chocolate chips in the centers of some for fun.)

I filled our cookie jar with these- but I can hardly wait to get some pretty sugars for the next batch for Christmas Cookies!

So pretty! WE also make cookies and things for gifts. I will have to try to find one of those. Where did you get yours?
How are you all? we are all finally over the sickness. We need to get together so I can give you your machine!
Talk to you soon!

I bought mine at the outlet mall in Crossville. I have one like it on the side bar on the right ;-).

Would love to get together and get the machine! Its that time of the year- can't get out- rain rain rain!

Glad to hear you all are feeling better! Hope you stay well through Christmas-time!
