The cookie press is super simple to use: simply slip silicone stamp on bottom of wooden handle and press into dough! Silicone stamps are food-safe and dishwasher safe so clean up is a breeze. Both the Holiday and Occasions presses can be found in the Occasions Mini Catalog for $16.95 (here).
The cookies were sliced directly from the dough roll, about 1/4" each (I like thin cookies) and baked according to package directions.
I have seen several ways to use the cookie presses with cookies but I found the easiest to be pressing the cookies after they've been baked. Let cookies cool for about a minute on baking sheet and then gently press the stamp onto cookies. Decorate, if desired.
If cutting thicker cookies, I recommend baking them for an additional minute letting them cool on the baking sheet for up to 3 minutes (the center of the cookie can be gooey) before pressing them.
