    I like it & I make it with my wolfgank Puck electric cookie maker that I got from Premiere appliance on line, in case you are still using the old hand press one. They are easy.

    This recipe is the easiest thing I have EVER made. It tastes so good too. Forget the icing. This thing is great by itself.

    So, so, so good. I made the ice box version because it's so quick. Used colored sugar to make them pretty. I really need to find an easy to use cookie press because I'd love to make the spritz version. I love to bake cookies and these are just rocking butter cookies. You cannot go wrong with this cookie batter recipe.

    Terrible recipe, Joy of cooking has a much easier to use recipe that works every time. Every sorry I tried this one, ended up having to make cookie balls instead of using my press. :( So sad.

    Great cookies! Could eat a dozen plain, but with frosting they are good too! I made mine very thick and did the normal time, they came out perfect! Did not even use a food pro. did it all by hand!! I will forever be a fan of these scrumptious cookies :D

    Very easy. I used my Kitchen Aide. Worked great! Don't forget the parchment paper. Slide off easily! They don't spread of "pucker" like other sugar cookies. Cook smaller sized for about 8 minutes!!!!
