While making Christmas cookies this year, I was asked to do a Cuisinart Cookie Press review. The cookie press was sent over and I couldn’t wait to use it! I had never used one before.
If you’ve been shopping at almost any big store or greenhouse in the last two weeks, you’ve more than likely noticed a mix of both Halloween and Christmas decorations reminding you that Christmas is only 65 days away.
You know what that means? Time to start thinking about holiday baking.
One of my favorite holiday traditions is eating baking Christmas cookies. And while I love to bake cookies, more often then not, they don’t like me to bake them! My cookies always seem to burn on the bottom, come out paper-thin, or far too large. No matter how hard I try, I sometimes think I was just not made to bake cookies.
However, this thought was recently challenged when we were sent a Cuisinart Electric Cookie Press for review. I have always wanted a cookie press and was thrilled to be getting an electric one.
So yesterday morning the Kora, Logan, and I set-up shop in the kitchen ready to practice making Christmas cookies with the new cookie press.
It was a lot of fun!
The Cuisinart Cookie Press was really easy to assemble and the nice thing is most of it came apart for easy washing. Putting in the dough was no problem and once we attached the tube to the motor and selected which of the 12 discs we wanted, we were ready to go.
There was a bit of a learning curve involved. It took a few tries to see just how much dough needed to come out to make the perfect cookie, but after awhile even Kora & Logan had the hang of it.
It wasn’t difficult either to switch discs either, so we were able to make a wide variety of cookies. There is also 8 assorted decorating tips which allow you to decorate cookies, cakes or even fill deviled eggs, pasta shells, and more. We didn’t get a chance to try the decorating tips yet, but they look just as easy to use as well.
Our cookies turned out pretty nicely. Yes, they were a little (okay a lot) large but it was our first time and I’m confident that the next time we use the cookie press, they will come out the right size and be shaped perfectly.
If you’re a big fan of holiday baking and enjoy making cookies, we definitely recommend the Cuisinart Electric Cookie Press.
