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!!
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 :)
This recipe was so easy and the cookies turned out great. This is a wonderful pick for a cookie exchange or a filler among a plate of other goodies. I added a bit more orange zest and also squeezed about a 1/4 teaspoon of the orange juice. It turned out so yummy!!!!!!
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.
