Okay, my cookie press is aluminum and has the trigger. It must be my mother's because my grandmother's had a twist dial on the top. For years, I always made the traditional from my childhood camels with a silver dragee for an eye, green wreaths with candied cherry holly, and green trees with sprinkles. Several years ago, I just could NOT get the cookies to stick to the sheet.
I made sure the sheets were clean and degreased, chilled the dough before inserting into the canister, chilled the canister, chilled the sheets, and combinations thereof. I just couldn't make it work. I'm waxing nostalgic again this year for those little spritz cookies that just get better with time. Can anyone suggest a solution? Thanks!
