Look at these little treasures. My mother in law gave me a cookie press/icing set for Christmas and I love it. This was my first attempt and the cookie dough wasn't really the right consistency to squeeze out the press evenly, but I am still happy with how they came out. And they were delicious too. The recipe called for almond essence, but I used orange instead as that was what I had in the cupboard and I think it worked even better as it cut through the buttery richness a bit. They are only tiny. One batch of dough made 83 cookies!
I am sure to be baking lots more cookies this year than ever before, so if any one has a yummy cookies recipie to share I would love try some new ones out. Only thing is it needs to be a smooth dough with no chunks in order to squeeze out the press.
