One of popular cookies served during festive occasions. Made with regular ingredients available from your pantry.
It requires a bit of time, since you have to press the cookies one by one but it's worth your effort. Turned out tasty and handsome too. One thing I love about this cookies is that you need not use any frosting /icing since they're pretty once you had pressed them out of the mold. Pearl sugar, dragees and sprinkles can be placed on top of this cookies to dress it up a bit and give it more festive appearance.
