I recently received the OXO Good Grips Cookie Press to give a try. I have to say to say this cookie press the easiest cookie press I have every used and comes with a disk storage case and that is a major plus! ┬áIf you had a sneak peak into my gadget drawer you would understand…I promise.

I just love pressed cookies, they are so easy to make and add something special to any holiday.

Cookie Press Butter Cookies

Yield: 12 dozen cookies

Cookie Press Butter Cookies

I have made cookie press cookies many times and this has got to be the perfect recipe. Not too sweet and this dough presses out perfectly formed cookies.

These cookies are great all on their own but wouldn't they make perfect toppers for holiday cupcakes?


  • 1 1/2 cups butter (3 sticks) at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups self rising flour
  • food coloring if desired


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugar and salt. Beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, beating continuously.
  • Gradually add flour, beating until well incorporated.
  • (optional) Add food coloring to desired color and mix well.
  • Place dough in cookie press with desired disk. Press dough out onto an ungreased, unlined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes. (I baked mine 8 minutes) Rotate baking sheet halfway through cooking time.
  • Once cool brush with light corn syrup and add sprinkles. The corn syrup is the glue to hold the sprinkles in place and adds just a little sweetness to the cookie.


You can easily half this recipe if you don't need 12 dozen cookies.
