2 1/4 cups
1 (3 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
I broke my cookie press and had to improvise and came out with the best cookies ever! I rolled the dough into balls, rolled that in coconut, and put strawberry jam in a thumbprint I made in the middle--people tell me they're the best cookies ever!!
I made this exactly as the recipe said and I tried to press them through a pastry bag...That didn't go so well, it was way too thick to even go through the piping tip so I had to make it softer. This changed the recipe a bit and the cookies came out flat. They tasted VERY good, and they were soft, but I was very disappointed that I couldn't use my pastry bag, and I don't have enough money to buy a press, since I'm a college student and can barely make it as is.
Absolutely perfect little butter cookie that's highly addictive! They just seem to pop right in your mouth. They're not overly sweet and I love the addition of the orange zest. I did increase the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp. but other than that I didn't change a thing. This was a great recipe for a cookie press! Just sprinkle with some colored sugar and you're ready to make a holiday cookie tray look like it came straight from your favorite bakery.
Wow! These knocked my socks off! They are delicious. I also doubled the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp. and added a little nutmeg. Then I added a 1/2 tsp of almond extract to the mix. I colored half the dough green and pressed into Christmas trees and the other half I left white and used a snowflake design. Mine were done in about 5 mins though so the first batch burned (had it set for 12 mins). It also made more than I thought -- between 7-8 dozen. Thanks for sharing!
These are the best cookie press cookies I have ever made. I omitted the zest and added a bit more cinnamon as suggested by other reviewers. I used the disk that I thought most resembled a snowflake and sprinkled them with red, green and white nonpariels before baking. They look so festive and will make a great addition to my cookie trays. Thanks for the recipe
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I lost this recipe years ago and have been unsuccessfully trying to duplicate it for many holidays. I found that by increasing the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp or adding 1/4 tsp nutmeg to recipe, it increases the taste tremendously. Cookie can also be decorated with sprinkles, cherries, or colored sugar for holiday.
Oh my, these are wonderful! I increased the amount of cinnamon, used 1/2 tsp orange extract and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, and used the zest of a whole medium orange to make them extra "orangey". The next batch I plan on dipping one side in Melted Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate. I think that will be heavenly!
*yummy*! I don't have a cookie press (yet), so I made these as regular cookies for one batch, then turned them into thumbprint cookies with raspberry jelly for the next batches -- delicious! Definitely will make these again :)
