This recipe makes good cookies BUT the cookies press is very important. If you have a badly designed one, like I do, you will probably feel quite frustrated before the batch is complete. Even if you only make a half batch, like me. The dough is easy to mix up, though pretty sticky. A wide mouth cookie press would be easy to load and save on frustration. (Mine is less than 2 inches diameter inside.) Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. I will use it again after I buy a new cookie press.
