    I make these every Christmas. I loved my original turned a crank/handle and could make your own shape. My mom always made circles that looked like wreaths (decorated with red and green candied cherry pieces) or s-shapes or straight lines. My press fell apart. Now I have the newer style that is harder to get started. I have to put the press directly onto the cookie sheet for each cookie to come out right. I do as close to the wreath shape that I can get.
    They are delicious and a family favorite!
    Thanks for posting it.....Chris

    Me too! my Mom use to make them like crazy. There were stars, pointesettas, Christmas trees, the flat one, and I think one was a camel. When I make them they stick to the press, then I slide my finger under real careful and, Wella! I have colorful blobs of dough that resemble kidneys, spleens, and livers.All diffrent colors with sprinkles ontop, festive like. I love the taste of these little buggers, maybe some one will straighten us out on how to......:)
