I love using my cookie press, which is almost as old as I am. It still works fine so why replace it. Most spritz cookies are crunchy, but these are soft and chewy. I think I might like this version better than the one I usually use.

They are loaded with almond flavor thanks to the almond flour and dash of almond extract. Combine that with cherry and I am one happy happy baker!

  1. I have never used almond flour, but will have to give it a try. I also have never used a cookie press! I think I must have been living under a rock. These cookies look delicious and I love the addition of a cherry on them. Thanks for being a part of the Fill The cookie Jar group. I am always excited to see what you have been baking.

  2. My mother had this cool cookie press and I used it all the time while growing up. I never purchased one for myself until just this year! It looks exactly like hers and I found it at an antique store. These would be perfect to use it with!! Fun co-hosting #HomeMattersParty with you!
