Tips: These cookies are best using a cookie press. I like to choose designs that allow me to put a chocolate chip or M&M in the middle for an added touch. If you are making these for a specific holiday, it is fun to use holiday colored candies. Don't forget that most cookie presses come with holiday themed shapes (ie. tree or wreath for Christmas, heart for Valentine's) so just add a drop or two of food coloring to make your hearts red or your trees green. If you do not have a cookie press, then use a flat ended glass dipped in sugar to flatten the cookies. I also shared this at Life as MOM's Recipe Swap.
