Mary is still baking!

She says:

These are Spritz cookies made with a cookie press.  The press was my mom's, probably from about 1950. They are easy to make but hard to get just the right amount of dough so you'll see some variation in the cookie sizes (btw, the instructions spell it "cooky").  I followed the directions so I used Crisco and almond extract. I could have used Mom's help....but it was fun.

The cookie factory at work...

The finished product.... I want some!

This is the implement. My mother had one as well... must have been the thing to do in the 1950s-60s. The different ips made different shaped cookies.

I have one of those too. We always used the insert that makes "ribbon" cookies.
