"These are wonderful cookies from the press. They are rich in flavor. My mom has made these cookies for years for all of the holidays. She even used food coloring for the different designs, like green trees, etc.The kids love to decorate them as much as they love to eat them."

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Sift together the flour and salt; set aside.
