Whole wheat press cookies

Posted in : Eggless cookies on by : apsara Tags: , , ,

I had iced a cake recently and had a lot of leftover frosting. Since I had used organic Spectrum shortening (with non-hydrogenated palm oil) to make icing, I did not have the heart to throw it away. So, here’s a quick recipe that I worked out to make cookies using it.

Preparation time: 20 minutes for dough prep and 15 minutes to bake.


Icing- 1/4 cup

white whole wheat flour- 1/2 cup

tapioca starch- 1 tbsp.

butter- 1/8 cup

vanilla- 1 tsp.

milk- 3-4 tsp.


1. Mix the flour and tapioca starch with icing, add vanilla extract and melted butter to it.

2. Add milk slowly to get the right consistency for a cookie press.

3. Fill a cookie press with the dough and create desired shapes by pressing onto a baking sheet lined with a baking mat.

4. Bake at 350 F in a preheated oven for 15 minutes.

5. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.

This makes about 15 cookies.
