A cookie press is needed to make these cookies.
- Serves: 9 persons
- 3¾ cups all-purpose flour
- ¾cup white sugar
- 1⅓ cups butter, softened
- ¼cup orange juice
- 1egg yolk
Step 1In large bowl, mix all ingredients at medium speed until well mixed. Cover and refrigerate for about one hour.
Step 2Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Use part of dough at a time, keeping the rest refrigerated.
Step 3Using a cookie press fitted with a bar-plate tip, press dough in long strips, about one inch apart down the length of the cookie sheets.
Step 4With a sharp knife, cut each strip into 2 1/2 inch pieces. Leave pieces in place. Bake 8 minutes or until light golden. Do not to overbake.
Step 5Remove from oven and immediately cut again between cookies to separate any cookies which are still joined together.
Step 6Move cookies to wire rack, and allow cookies to cool completely. Store tightly covered.
