I have this very old cookie press. My Mom got it in March 1965, according to the date on the shipping box. She gave it to me a few years later. I had it tucked away and decided to get it out and make some old fashioned Christmas cookies.
I love Christmas cookies. One of my favs are the old fashioned sugar cookies with colored sprinkles. Christmas just doesn't seem right without them somehow. Another favorite is Mexican Wedding Cookies. My Mom used to make these and they taste soooo very good. But she shaped them a bit different and called them Ladyfingers.
You know you can count on Martha Stewart for great gift wrapping ideas. I found these on marthastewart.com and they are really cute. Not all of them are ones I would do but I picked out a couple of favorites to try this year. Hope they inspire you as well.
