The Cookie Press

This weekend, I decided that I wanted to try the cookie press that my aunt gave us as a wedding gift. So I contacted my aunt, got my Nana's cookie press recipe, and gave it a go. Having never used a cookie press on my own before, I was a little unsure about how sticky the dough was supposed to be, so I think I might have added a little too much flour. But the cookies still turned out super cute and they were really fun to make.

Unfortunately, squeezing the trigger on the cookie press turned out to be too difficult for my hands after a couple of sheets. My hands just sort of ran out of steam, and that was a little bit frustrating. Luckily, APL wanted to help and he turned out to be a champion cookie presser! And then we got to bake cookies together, which was way more fun than doing it all by myself.

Absolutely more fun! And in a few years you'll have a little one more than willing to do the cookie press for you. :)

Just imagining my little one managing the cookie press is nightmarish...LOL. In my experience, you may want to wait until baby L is like..... 30!

on the other hand, Miss K was very er... Um... "helpful" when it came to decorating the cookies.... If you like 10 pounds of sprinkles, that is ;-)

MOM2LITTLEMISS: To be honest, I think little hands would have trouble with my cookie press - I did! And 10 pounds of sprinkles is half the fun. ~;o)

LAURIE: It was pretty awesome to see my husband turned into a cookie factory. ~;o)
