    Would you believe I have had a cookie press for about four years and every year I forget to use it…probably because I have it put away. far far away. Please remind me again next year, these cookies look great! Merry Christmas Lisa!!

    Christmas with kids is always fun, and there´s a lot of logistic to take into account..jaja. Lovely cookies! I have a cookie press that I never used, and it´s probably ten years old…. I wonder where I keep it? I should start using it. Happy Holidays!

    Hello, I would love to make these with the almond extract. Did the recipe call for the
    same amount of almond extract that you have for the vanilla?
