Hi Mary, we haven't tested this in a cookie press, so it's hard to say. It may be too firm to use in the press, so we'd suggest using one of the spritz recipes on our site. Happy baking!

I think a key thing to remember when baking shortbread especially is to accurately measure the ingredients. This cookie has relatively few ingredients and so it is important to measure these ingredients carefully.

Excellent Cookies!! I made shortbread cookies with other recipes before and they came out very greasy, not the case with these!

I suggest doubling the recipe,as these freeze well. Great baking activity to do with "interested" grandchildren.
