“My grandma gave me a cookie press a few years back, and has since been asking me to use it. I was a bit intimidated by it.. but once you get the hang of it, it's easy. The original recipe called for margarine, which I've replaced with butter. Also, sometimes I have to add 1/8-1/4 cup extra flour to get a texture that will hold its shape, I haven't quite figured out what causes that. I've also added in the instructions to chill if necessary, which my grandma never did.”

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Cream together butter with both sugars.
  3. Add eggs, beating well after each addition.
  4. Add vanilla.
  5. Sift together flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda.
  6. Gradually add dry mixture into wet mixture and beat well, dough will be stiff.
  7. Assemble cookie press and fill with dough, using desired disc.
  8. At this point, you can chill the dough in the press if it doesn't seem firm enough.
  9. Press cookies onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  10. Bake 12-15 minutes until slightly golden.
  11. Note:If you aren't experienced with a cookie press, it make take a few trial and errors, make sure to use an ungreased cookie sheet, the cookies need to"grab" onto the sheet, if necessary, spray the outer side of the disc with vegetable oil to make the cookie release more easily.
