I have been given (a lot!) of baking supplies from my second cousin after his mom passed away. Among those were three or four cookie presses. Among them were the Wilton Cookie Pro (I think I got that right!) and a Pampered Chef one.

I have never used a cookie press, but I have been looking around at some and secretly hoping that I would get one for Christmas. icon_biggrin.gif Does it matter what kind of dough you put in them (like cold, room temp, ect?). I have never used one and have no idea how!

My cousin has one that my Mom said she used her cookie press to make cute little tops on her deviled eggs, but she didn't get a picture. icon_rolleyes.gif

I have had most success with a chilled dough. There are usually recipes with the cookie press. But probably more online!

Look up recipes for Spritz cookies. That should give you some idea of what a recipe needs to go through a press.

Spritz recipes don't contain any baking soda or powder. Helps them maintain their shape wile baking. Cream Cheese Spritz or Jello Spritz are the best. The flavor combos are endless! I have the same cookie press that I used as a kid, and it never fails me. These are fun cookies to make! icon_smile.gif
