These have been a "must" in our home during Christmas for 40 years. Quantity will depend on the pattern used on the cookie press/shooter.

I made this recipe with my 7 year old Christmas 05 and she had a blast. We were even able to add food coloring to the dough. This was a fun simple and quick recipe (great for kids) but I felt the flavor could have been better with a more complex recipe. Read More

I refrigerate for 45min or so and roll this recipe out for cut out cookies and ice with buttercream icing. The floury taste is masked and these cookies bake nicely cut-out. Layer between wax paper lightly floured to roll out then cut. My college boys love these. Read More

Delicious! Everyone at work loves it. I've given out MANY copies of the recipe. I don't understand the ratings that say it is flour tasting. Maybe they aren't using real butter. Read More

I can see how people would LOVE this but I am giving it four stars because I found it to be too floury I prefer a VERY sweet semi-moist cookie. As for the recipe itself it was easy to follow and the cook time was almost spot on. Read More
