Wilton Cookie Press

        Hi there wanted to bring you Recipe #18 with the lo, the snowflake spritz cookies.  If you have never used a cookie press well then you should, because they are awesome!! I had one back right after I got married and it never really worked well, so all these years I have been a little skeptical about buying a new one...for the same fear. Well one day when at Michael's and a coupon I thought yeah let me buy a new one and try it out. Well most defiantly worth the purchase. It really does work GREAT!! Wilton Cookie Press click HERE . I used the recipe in the booklet that came with it....oh cool is that!! I put the YouTube Video up so you can see it for yourself. AWESOME!!! I have made them several times since my purchase, they usually disappear quick. They are right tasty.
Spritz Cookie Recipe
1 1/2 cups of butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 Tablespoons milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
3 1/2 cups of flour (all-purpose)
1 tsp. baking powder
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  First cream the butter and sugar together in the mixer, add the egg, milk, vanilla, and almond extract. Stir together the flour and baking powder gradually adding to the creamed mixture. Mix well now roll into a log if you wish, i just pack it into the cylinder of the cookie press and start pressing on your ungreased cookie sheet, (I use the stones) Do NOT chill the dough.  If using sprinkles do so before cooking on these. I added frosting so the sprinkles stuck to that instead of the cookie. If you choose to dye the dough just add a few drops of food coloring or even icing colors Wilton has them.  These are yummy!! Here are some more Wilton recipes click HERE.

The layout is a pic of my dd Amanda this past January in a snow we had.  I thought it was so perfect with those pp's. I bought these last week and there were only these two sheets left and a few of the embellies. I was eager to make this lo, remember I have not scrapped much this year.....this is only the second lo since March. So many other projects going on.  The pp are Bo Bunny, the stitching is We R Memory Keeper's the sewing tool, it works great!! I used the Fiskars wavy paper roller. The straight pin was just a little something I made with wire...the crystal was such a nice touch. Hope you like it!! Have a wonderful day!!! Until tomorrow.  Cyber Hugs, Dawn Gallop
