Oh what fun it was to bake cookies using my mom's vintage cookie press gun. So easy and so good.
Many years ago, mom and I would make cookies using this wonderful tool. At some point I even taped the recipe in the lid. And look, the original price tag still on the box from Montgomery Wards. I am not sure of the year, but if was sometime in the early 60's. I remember being in the first grade when we made these delicious butter cookies in sweet designs made from the interchangeable plates.
It really was fun times back then when mom and I baked together. I have not used this tool in awhile so I thought this year I would bake few and share the day with you. Here is a bit of the process. An old cookie baking craft, but still as yummy today as it was then.
So yummy good. Did you notice Miss B looking on? She always has to see what mom is up to! LOL of course she had to have a little taste. She agreed they are too good!
In the end of my baking day, I had to make a batch of Snickerdoodles to fill my Christmas Cottage Cookie Jar. These also bring back many memories of being the room mother for my son's grade school classes. The kiddos always loved them.
Thank you for coming over to bake some fresh cookies created with my vintage cookie gun tool. I will be back tomorrow and share my trips to the White House, never before shown on my blog. I hope you can join me as we visit the Nations Capital.
Till then, enjoy the day and Merry Christmas.
Hugs from Texas,
