My grandma Rose made these butter cookies all the time and could always be found in her cookie jar. When she passed away in 1987 I inherited her old fashioned cookie press. I have been making them ever since. My kids love them as much I do and are always the most requested cookie in our house.
I keep pressed, frozen cookies in the freezer at all times. For a special after school snack I will bake off a batch and once cooled, put in a cookie jar. I put two cookies in a secret hiding place, just for me, becasue I know they once discovered, they will disappear and won’t last through the night.
