Purchased when I was struggling to make ends meet for my kids and myself, I remember thinking that it would suffice for that year. Little did I know that the petite cookie press, made in Germany, would still be functioning 35 years later! My "kids" , now 47 and 42, joke about it each year. The thing is, it always makes perfect cookies, while other name brand cookie presses have been tried and given away.
The past few years I put my own spin on these buttery, melt-in-your-mouth cookies. Now referred to as "Orange Delights" and with the help of Nutella for the filling, I make sandwich cookies with them. It forces me to make two batches (each batch makes about 72 cookies), however, it's worth it.
So, as I take each cookie off the baking sheet, I place it on the cooling rack next to "it's mate", a cookie that is approximately the same size and shape. Believe it or not, I spend more time finding "the right mate" than I do baking them.
