Valentine’s Chocolate Butter Cookies
How lucky were we as a group to get this wonderful Oxo Cookie Press to try out. So I thought that making Valentine’s Chocolate Butter Cookies was a great idea! For our latest giveaway each of the five bloggers were given a cookie press to make cookies and blog. We also have one in our giveaway for a lucky winner. With the cookie press comes twelve discs for all seasons but we also received another 6 spring discs to try.
A New Toy!
I have been very excited to try this as I don’t own a cookie press and have always wanted one. I have to say this was so easy to use. Just follow the instructions carefully and it goes without a hitch. Use an ungreased room temperature cookie sheet and the dough sticks right to it, no need for a knife!! In no time flat you have tray of cookies ready for the oven. I LOVED using this, so much fun, can’t wait to do another batch with Amber!! Good bye cookie cutters and hello cookie press!!!
I used the recipe that was included and it is so good. Run and I mean run to the store to get one of these. You will be thrilled!!
Here are my Valentine’s Day cookies for you all. Happy Valentine’s Day!!
