I found a simple shortbread cookie recipe to use with a cookie press. I had a hard time getting the cookie dough to separate from the press. I even sprayed a little pam on the cookie plates, but it didn't help.
Do you have to use certain recipes with certain brand presses?
Could it have been the recipe? (butter, flour, confectioners sugar,vanilla and cornstarch.) The cookie shapes held together beautifully when baked, but getting the dough to drop off the press was a bit much.
