Worked great in my Wilton Cookie press. I followed the recipe as written. My husband thought they could be a little more favorful, but I thought they were fine. Next time I may add a little more flavoring. Thank you for sharing.

These were awesome and worked so well in my Wilton Cookie press, that I just stapled your recipe over the one they recommend. They were super tasty and everyone loved them, I loved how they were perfectly golden and crispy. Thank you for posting.
