My grandma gave us a cookie press similar to this one, but we didn’t know how to use it.  Last year my friend had us over to make cookies, and she used her cookie press.  In order to make cookie press cookies, you need a cookie press cookie recipe!  Once I saw how she did it, I wanted to make my own.  I found a cookie press at a thrift store.  Armed with my friend’s recipe and my new-to-me cookie press, I was ready to make my own cookies!

I like to double cookie recipes.  It seems that if you are going to go to the trouble to make cookies, they should at least last more than 24 hours!

Your dough should not be this crumbly if you have remembered to add the vanilla extract….

It is pretty neat how the shapes come out differently than you might expect on the cookie sheet.

I soon found out that this cookie press leaks dough between the “round shape plate” and the canister of dough.   This one twists– I think it is an older style.  My friend’s cookie press has a trigger, and it dispenses just the right amount of cookie dough.   With my twist edition, I had to guess how much cookie dough was enough to get them right.  Twisting was also a lot more work than just squeezing the trigger. Here is the camel shape:

And this is how it looks as a dough on the cookie sheet….  (further below you can see how fat they look cooked.)

Here is a cross design that ends up looking like a star:

Here is the same sheet of cookies unbaked, and baked:

There were little scottish terriers…

Unbaked, and baked….

I think the butterflies were my favorite. It was so much fun to add the different colored dough to the dispenser and see how they came out.  I liked the camels a lot, too.

  1. I was gifted a cookie press several years ago and have not used it. You’ve inspired me to make some cookies with it! I’ve always loved the look of cookie press cookies. I’ve featured this post at Thursday Favorite Things today. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Seeing your cookie press takes me straight back to the 70’s when my mom used a cookie press very similar to yours to make cookies at Christmas. I think hers leaked dough just like yours does. A tradition in our neighborhood is to give each other plates of cookies at Christmas. Our next door neighbor always includes cookie press cookies on her plate and we love them. I *think* that I have a cookie press in my pantry that I bought years ago and only used one time. I remember thinking that the dough recipe I used had to be wrong because I had a lot of trouble getting the cookies to form a shape properly. I’m going to look in the pantry to see if I still have the cookie press and if I do, I’m going to try your recipe. If you doubled the recipe, you probably made a lot of cookies!

    1. I hope you do and that it works! It really is a fast way to make cute cookies. I read that having the baking sheet cold helps. And after you squeeze the dough through, wait a second before you pull the press away from the baking sheet. It takes some experimenting to squeeze out the right amount of dough so that it will stick to the baking sheet, yet still pull away from the cookie press.
