      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31).

Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Mini choc chips, mini m&m's and little jelly jubes make great decorations for a pre baked cookie. You can ice these cookies and add all sorts of decorations after baking. Dust plain cookies with icing sugar for a simple treat.This recipe should be used straight away and does not work well in a cookie dough press if the dough has been refrigerated. If dough becomes too soft and you have difficulty pressing place in the fridge for no longer than 5 minutes or it will not work well in the cookie dough press.

    I have made these cookie press biscuits twice now - the first using almond meal as in the recipe but the second time using half almond meal and half hazelnut meal. The second time was a lot more flavoursome so I will stick to that. Very easy recipe to make with a cookie press!

    I think I overprocessed the almonds to make the meal, but a very cool recipe, thanks! It went easily through my retro SAWA cookie press, making very cute spritz biscuits, that aren't too sweet.

    Fabulous recipe! I used cashews to make the meal instead of almonds and they are fantastic.

    Thanks for your extra tips too
