I have a really hard time finding a recipe that will work with my Pampered Chef cookie press but this is the best one I've tried so far.
The texture of the dough came out fine, but the end result were cookies that weren't at all sweet, which is fine if you're going to frost/decorate them heavily. But even w/ my ultra-sweet royal icing, it still (to me) didn't balance out the blandness of the cookie and sweetness of the frosting. I'm not even sure if that makes sense, but all I know is I've had better, and will try a shortbread cookie recipe next time.
After trying many different recipes, I decided to try this one --- OUTRAGEOUS! I love it! My kids (4 1/2 & 6) had a ball making these with me. Not much of a mess at all. I won't even give my friends the recipe (I want my cookies to be the best). I was unsure as to how long to chill the dough before filling the press so I only left it in the fridge for an hour and was surprised as to how easy the dough was to work with. Thanks for making my cookies a hit at my son's pre-school --- Michelle
My favorite cookie press recipe of all. My 6 year old loves to help with these...he's the official decorator. I don't chill the dough and it works beautifully. Kids and adults both love these cookies. Thanks for sharing!
This recipe is superb!!!
I have tried so many recipes and this is the best so far. I always make a batch of these when we go to parties to take and they always go down so well.
This was a really nice dough to work with refrigerate it for about 30 mins. My kids had a ball helping
The dough was very difficult and stiff to work with. It is also very picky and has to be chilled just right, but not too much or it wont work with the cookie press. I wasn't too satisfied with the flavor, too dry and bland (even after adding an extra 1/4 cup of sugar). To sweeten things up a bit, I sprinkled more sugar along the tops before baking.
Although these cookies were fun to make and fairly easy...they didn't taste that great! They were perfect for my mom who likes to dunk them in coffee but to just eat as a snack...they weren't all that great!~
