If you don't have a press - could you slice and bake after getting cold - or any other ideas.

This is my grandma's Orange Cookie recipe and they do not require a press. Although good the first day, they get better as they age, IMO. The cookies are moist and cake-like. It might be that the recipe was for cupcakes and she didn't have liners, so started making them as cookies. You can make them with lemon instead of orange as well. (She made a similar sour milk chocolate frosted cookie--and that recipe does use sour milk, not buttermilk).

CWS' Grandma's Orange Cookies

1-1/2 c sugar
3/4 c butter (softened)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp lemon or orange extract
1 c milk
1 tsp soda
1 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 c flour
Grated rind and juice of one orange.

Directions:

1. Cream the butter and the sugar until light.
2. Add the eggs and extract.
3. Add the milk.
4. Sift 1 c flour with 1 tsp soda. Add.
5. Sift 2 c flour with 2 tsp baking powder.
6. Add the juice and zest..
7. Drop on greased cookie sheet (I use a soup spoon or medium cookie dough scoop)--I leave about 2 inches between each dollop.
8. Bake 8-10 minutes at 350 (they are light, the edges and bottoms just lightly golden brown).

Let cool on wire rack. Frost with powder sugar frosting made of 3 T butter, grated rind of one orange, a bit of orange juice, and powdered sugar.

Roll the dough into a log in some waxed paper then cut them into 1/4 rounds after chilling. They'll be just as tasty!

I'd add an extra egg and then use a fork like you do for PB cookies or a glass with the bottom sugared press the cookies that way and see how they do. I'd think it would be fine.

I was thinking one could roll into balls and press with a glass (or a cookie stamp). I don't know if one did it this way if one would have to add anything. I did that one year when the cookie press was not cooperating when I made Spritz cookies.
