    Donna M.'s Note:

    I have had this recipe for so long that I can't remember where it came from, but I think I got it out of a magazine or newspaper. I like it because you can use the dough in so many different ways. For the Holidays, you can press half of a candied cherry in the center of unbaked cookie, and then after baking drizzle with either white or dark chocolate, melted.

      These were nice and soft, almost chewy and very easy to make. I used the drop method and sugar dipped glass to flatten. I think Hersheys kisses pressed into the center would also be delightful. Thank you for sharing this recipe Donna!

      These were wonderful Donna M. I made them as I would regular sugar cookies and used Fall colored sugar (gold, green and orange) on top. You are right, this recipe is very versatile. The cookies were nice and soft on the inside. My kids helped with the decorating. Thanks for a great recipe.

      In spite of the delicious title, this is a slightly dry, not too sweet cookie. I was surprised to find that they taste like the recipe my mom always uses for cookie press cookies. But I tried to use cookie cutters after chilling the dough for hours- dough was too sticky. Then used the "press with a sugared glass" method, which worked. But "Pianolady" is correct- these are not cookies that you should take out of the oven slightly underdone. Let them get good and brown around the edges if you want any flavor!
