  • The cookie press should have instructions by the manufacturer so use those directions to tell how to get the cookie dough goes into the cookie press and comes out.

  • Then the cookies should be pressed out of the cookie press onto the ungreased cookie sheets with the cookies being put 1 inch apart from each other on baking sheets that are ungreased.

  • The cookies can be made into different shapes using different disks.

  • After the cookies are n the baking sheet, and before the cookies are put in the oven they should have sugar and nonpareils sprinkled on the cookies.

  • Until the cookies are golden on the edges these cookies should be baked for 10-12 minutes.

    Then after they are baked and have golden edges do not immediately.take off the baking sheet. Let them stay on the baking sheets on the wire racks where they should cool a little bit.

  • After they are cooled a bit they should be taken off the baking sheet and to allow the cookies to cool entirely put the cookies on the rack.

  • These cookies stay safe up to three weeks in layers that are separated by wax paper in an airtight container. The room temperature should be cold. Or if you prefer to freeze them they can stay in the freezer up to three months.
