Recipe: Cookie Press Peppermint Filled Christmas Tree Cookies

3/4 c Margarine or butter
1/2 c Sugar
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1 Egg yolk
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/4 ts almond extract
1 3/4 c All-purpose flour
green food coloring

For easy passage through the cookie press, do not chill any Spritz dough. Hold the cookie press upright over the cookie sheet EXCEPT when making bars.

Beat margarine or butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and baking powder and beat till combined. Add egg yolk, vanilla, and almond extract and beat till combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer.

Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon. Tint dough with green food coloring.

Force the dough through a cookie press onto an ungreased cool cookie sheet using a tree template. Bake in a 400 oven for 7 to 8 minutes or till done. Remove and cool.
For filling: combine 1 cup sifted powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons softened margarine or butter, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and 2 tablespoons finely crushed peppermint sticks. Stir in enough milk (2 to 3 tablespoons) to make of spreading consistency. Spread 1 teaspoon filling each on the flat side of half of the cookies. Top with the remaining cookies, flat side down. Makes about 36.

How do you make cheese straws with out the cookie press?

Question by Amanda Z: How do you make cheese straws with out the cookie press?

Best answer:

Answer by annienyc_1120
refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes and roll on a lightly floured surface into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Cut into smaller rectangles, about 2 by 3-inches, with a pizza wheel or sharp knife

BTW, this is the recipe we always use:

1 2/3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 pound extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, coarsely grated (2 1/2 cups)
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 tablespoons water

Sift the flour, mustard, salt and cayenne into a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat the cheese and butter on low speed until well blended. Gradually beat in the flour until completely incorporated. Add the water and beat for 1 minute.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 5 times. On a large sheet of wax paper, roll the dough into a 12-by-9-inch rectangle. Slide the dough onto a cookie sheet and refrigerate until chilled, about 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 425°. Cut the dough in half crosswise, then cut it into 6-by- 1/4 -inch strips. Transfer the strips to 2 cookie sheets. Bake 1 sheet at a time for about 14 minutes, or until the cheese straws are golden brown and crisp. Let cool slightly, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
