Press Release

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Ok... so what I'm about to share with you isn't exactly pressing news.

But it is delicious news and one of the easiest to make cookies that look like they took hours to prepare.

That caught your eye didn't it?

So, my first question is: do you have a cookie press?

If you answered yes, congratulations because you're in luck! But, if you answered no it's ok too! My cookie press was only $12.99 and it's really easy to use.

Let's get going on this recipe. Christmas is just days away!

Cookie Press Shortbread Trees - makes about 3 dozen small cookies

1 cup of butter
1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup icing sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Chocolate chips and green sugar for decorating

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2. Beat butter until it's creamy. Then mix in all ingredients (except for chocolate chips and green sugar).

3. Add a drop (literally a drop) of milk if the mixture is too dry for the cookie press and press away with a tree attachment according your cookie press's instructions.

4. Place a chocolate chip on the top of each tree and sprinkle a little green sugar on for decoration.

5. Bake for 20 minutes and enjoy!

Bite sized treats that don't require much work? Sounds good to me!
