New year, new cookies!

Another of Jerry's excellent Christmas eBay finds was an old fashioned cookie press. A proper metal one too, not a plastic one, and it came with about 8 different discs for different shapes.

 

He also googled some recipes for me too as it didn't come with instructions, and apparently the mixture and consistency is important when using a press. Here's my first attempt - just a basic vanilla shortbread. With practice I think I will be able to turn out some posh looking numbers! Oh, and they taste pretty good too!

My cookie press is new but stainless steel, but you can't go past a good bargain one! I have only made some GF vanilla cookies in mine so far (got it for Mothers Day 2009!) but intended to also make pikelets and fritters with it... maybe!

That bottom cookie looks rather like a uterus! LOL

Debbie - There were quite a few months spent searching and waiting for a non plastic version to appear on ebay.
Dixiebelle - If they're sweet and tasty please send Margo the recipe, afterall we must encourage her to use the new present!
