Cookie Press Cookies

April 9, 2013 12:24 pm · Posted by Lauren G

For Christmas, my mom gave me a cookie press. I'm kind of surprised it's taken me this long to try it. Since I knew I wanted to bake a lot for Easter, I figured it was the perfect time to bust it out. There are a lot of different recipes out there, so I tried two, this one from Martha Stewart and a shortbread recipe. This one tasted better, so I figured I'd share it with you. Besides, when has Martha ever been wrong? I threw some blue food coloring in there, but you can also use colored sugar or even frosting.

  • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 3 3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, flour, salt, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Fill a cookie press either by spooning the dough into the container or by making cylinder-shaped piece of dough to fit in the tube. Turn out cookies 1 to 2 inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. 
  3. Bake until the cookies are lightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes. To ensure even baking, rotate sheet halfway through the baking process. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool.
