Scrumptious butter cookie perfect for your cookie press!

City Bakery Simple Cookie Press Cookies


2 cups plus 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
1 cup confectioner's sugar
2 1/2 cups unbleached, organic, all-purpose flour, sifted
1 1/2 cups cornstarch

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 325 F.

Put the butter in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer. Attach the bowl to the mixer with a paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until butter softens slightly. With the mixer running, add the sugar to the butter with a slow, constant pouring motion.

Stop the mixer and add half the flour and cornstarch. Mix on low speed until the dry ingredients are partly incorporated. Stop mixing and add the remaining flour and cornstarch. Mix on slow speed until all dry ingredients are combined into the butter. Do not over-mix.

Line cookie baking sheets with parchment paper. When the oven is preheated, put small batches of cookie dough into a cookie press. Squeeze onto cookie sheet in desired shapes. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until cookie edges turn slightly golden.

Makes approximately 48 cookies.
