Holiday Product Review: Wilton Cookie Press


A few weeks ago, my mom and I spotted this cookie press at Target. I have been wanting a cookie press for a long time and since this one was such a good deal, $9.99, we decided to pick it up and try it out. This past weekend, I got busy and whipped up a batch of Christmas trees to freeze for Christmas. I followed the recipe on the back of the box and swapped out the almond extract for lemon and added a bit more vanilla....I love vanilla!! I also added some green food coloring to make the cookies more festive.

I must say that what you get for ten bucks is nice. There are twelve different disks complete with a Christmas tree and a pumpkin, making this a nice buy for making all different kinds of holiday cookies. The press is nice and sturdy, not what you might expect from a ten dollar buy. Once I started making the cookies, things did not go as smoothly as the box states it will. There is a definite technique to making the cookies come out and it took several tries to make them look acceptable, even for a somewhat experienced baker. Once I got it down, they went onto the cookie sheet like one - two - three!!

The recipe tastes okay. It calls for 3 sticks of butter, which overpowers the taste. It is more of a butter cookie than anything.

Overall, I give this cookie press 8/10. The price is great and is quite sturdy. Target is carrying this press as part of their regular holiday specials that are found in their signature boxes. So if you still need to get some baking done for Christmas, I recommend this press. It takes the stress out of baking!! :)

I have this same cookie press and it's the best one I've ever owned. I do find I sometimes have to double press but the cookies still look good (I use the Christmas tree disk the most).

Your cookies look lovely!! And isn't it fun using a cookie press? ;) I have my grandmother's Mirro cookie press that I use - there's definitely a knack to getting the cookies to come out consistently. My favorite disk is the Scottie dog one.

Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
