So I got a cookie press for Christmas. Naturally this meant that I needed to bake sugar cookies to test it out on.

Sugar Cookies

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup / 200 g sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 cups / 375 g flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix together. Allow to chill for 1 to 2 hours (or if you’re impatient like me, put it in the freezer for 15 minutes).

When you’re ready, pop the dough into the cookie press. If you don’t know how these gadgets work, try searching YouTube for a that makes sense to you or check out the video below. Alternatively you could just roll the dough into walnut sized balls and push flat onto a baking tray.

When you’ve used up all the dough, bake the cookies at 180°C (350°F) for 10 to 12 minutes.

The result should look something like this!
