I am so excited. They worked!! I was thinking at a couple of points they would not work. First I found a recipe in my cookbook Betty Crocker Cookie Book. Then got to work on making them. But when they were done they did not look quite right. Dry and crumbly. But I thought maybe if I squish it together with my hands then it will be fine. I thought though I better double check the recipe that I added everything. Well would you look at that. I forgot to add the egg. Oh brother. Well good thing I found out now. So I added that and everything came together beautifully. So now to get out the cookie press. I read the instructions how to use it, tthen proceed ahead. I take a bunch of dough and shape it into a log, then shove the log inside the press. pick a shape and screw on the top. Then we are good to go right? I start to press the dough out but nothing happens. It comes out but in a jumbled mess. What is this. Oi! Doesn't work why did I try again. So I phone a friend who bakes alot maybe she has used on of these before. But to my luck she is not home. Then I get a brillant idea. Youtube! They have a video for everything. So I check and sure enough they had a video on how to use a cookie press. I watched 3 videos and went to work. To my delight it WORKED!!! You have seen the picture as proof. Hurray!! I can make spritz cookies. Woo Hoo!!!! I am tickled pink. Well off to making the lemonade. Lemonade and Cookie stand opens at 3:00pm and as it is 2:30pm I better get going.
