How to make it

  • Beat softened butter with electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds.
  • Add sugar and baking powder, beat well.
  • Add egg and extract, and zest, if using that option; beat until well combined.
  • Beat in as much flour as possible with the mixer, then use a wooden spoon to mix in any remaining flour (I was able to use the mixer for all the flour).
  • Pack dough into your cookie press, fitted with the design of your choice.
  • Force dough through press onto ungreased baking sheets (I used silpat lined pans for ease of baking and removing the cookies).
  • Decorate the tops before baking.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes, until the bottoms begin to brown JUST slightly.
  • Cool and decorate with additional melted, tinted white chocolate, if desired (I melted and tinted some white chocolate then put it into small squeeze bottles designed for frosting decorating - you can probably find such bottles at a craft store or specialty kitchen/baking shop.
