Spent a good part of the day making more cookies
for the goodies table at work.
Had to throw it away!
Finally decided the thermometer
was maybe wrong.
You have to cook the fudge to
235 degrees before it will "set".
We're thinking we cooked it too high,
that's why it was dry.
the next batch turned out perfect!
The cookies here are called press cookies.
That's because you put the dough into
this cylinder like contraption and
With a little food coloring mixed in
the dough first, you can make
green Christmas trees or wreaths,
and even multi colored swirls.
Add some colored sugar sprinkles,
and you have some tasty little treats!
I got the press from my
grandmother when she passed
away nearly thirty years ago.
The new ones now are plastic,
but I like the old metal one!
