Pampered Chef: New cookie press recipe

    I am happy to report that the "all purpose cookie dough recipe" that we've had from past years works wonderful in the new cookie press...I tried the spritz recipe (the one that comes with the press now) yesterday and didn't care for it...tasted bland....and I don't like the idea that we have to use a mixer for the dough...I pulled out the all purpose one this morning and only made 1/2 a recipe...yipppeeee...it worked wonderfully....I am demoing the press tonite and was getting worried...
    Here is what I used:
    1/2 a box of white cake mix (you can use yellow or chocolate too)
    1 stick of margarine
    1 stick of real butter
    (the reason for this is because if you use all butter the dough starts to thicken up too quick.
    1 1/3 cups flour

    **put cake mix and flour in bowl
    **melt stick of butter in micro cooker
    **cut in stick of margarine and let rest 3 minutes until all melted together and creamy
    **pour into dry mixture...
    **use scraper to mix together (it's mixes right up)
    **put in press

    (full recipe)
    1 cake mix
    2 3/4 cups flour
    2 sticks of margarine
    2 sticks of butter (melt the 2 sticks and then cut the margarine into that)

    **I only wanted to do 1/2 a batch because this amount still did my lg. round stone and the new cookie sheet full of pumpkin cookies...
    I put a few orange sprinkles on them before baking them...Yummmmmmmy

    we have to use a mixer for the dough.

    I made these and din't cream the butter enough, dough was bad.
    I contacted test kitchens and they said you need to cream that butter really well, to create a light & fluffy cookie

    The Peanut Butter Press recipe from All the Best works too! 1 cup PB 1 Cup sugar 1 egg. Great for people who need gluten free!

    did them at my show tonite with the "all purpose recipe" I posted earlier..worked fine...I also had grabbed a pillsbury peanut cookie dough tube before I left for show just in case...I put that in the press with nothing else and it worked really well...they came right out onto my stone and onto new aluminum cookie sheet..so that's a cheap way to show the press if you want at shows..no mixing at all...you could add 1/4 cup flour to the PB dough if you want to stiffen it up just a little...

    Ooooh, that's cool, didn't know that you could do that... Will it work with the pillsbury sugar cookie tubes too? My son is allergic to PB so that won't work for us, but the sugar cookie would... may have to try that, the kids love to make cookies and that would be a great way to try out my new cookie press...

    Also looking for the temp and time. Mixing them up right now and went to preheat the oven and realized that info. was missing. Gonna guess 350, 8-10 min. if I don't hear!
