  • Notes:

    • Use an ungreased cookie sheet.>
    • Greasing your pan will cause your cookies to spread, so make sure to use an ungreased, cool baking sheet.
    • Use room temperature dough.
    • If your dough has gotten too warm, place it in the fridge for a few minutes to return to room temperature. This will ensure that your dough is the proper consistency for the cookie press.
    • Reuse dough.
    • If any of your cookies are pressed incorrectly, roll the dough back into the remaining dough and reuse it.
    • Freezing dough.
    • Spritz dough may be frozen for up to 2 months. Form into a log and wrap well in plastic wrap. Let dough thaw completely and return to room temperature before using.
    • Bake all the same shape at once.
    • For consistent and even baking, bake all the same pressed shapes on the same sheet.
    • How to use a cookie press:
    • With clean hands, fill the barrel of the press with a log of dough. Place the desired cookie disk into the base of the press, smooth side up. Screw the base onto the barrel. Give the plunger a couple of presses to help push the dough down. Firmly place the bottom of the press onto the cool, ungreased cookie sheet. Squeeze trigger to form the cookie.
    • To store:
    • Store cookies in an airtight container at cool room temperature for several weeks or freeze for two months. Form into a log and wrap well in plastic wrap. Let dough thaw completely and return to room temperature before using.
