Wilton Butter Press Cookies

I love these simple little cookies with my afternoon tea. Very versatile too since you can color them or use whatever press attachment is appropriate for the occasion. For a super dainty cookie, use the bar plate in the press and press a long ribbon of dough onto a cookie sheet (ridged side up). Score the cookie dough at 2 inch intervals. (I use a pizza cutter, much easier than a knife) Once cool, drizzle melted chocolate coating over them in a zigzag pattern and dust with confectioner's sugar. Show more
