Cookie Press Cookies

This recipe came with my mother's cookie press; I've just adapted it to whole wheat flour

Sheets lightly greased         Oven 375 degrees C      Time 10-12 minutes

1/2 cup butter
1 cup  sugar

2 eggs
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

  375 grams soft wheat
 OR substitute
    2 1/2 cups unbleached flour or whole wheat pastry flour

1/4 teaspoon powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg   

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in the eggs, milk and vanilla until smooth and light.  

Whisk flour, powder and salt together, then stir into wet, just until mixed.  

Press shapes close together (they won't spread much) onto lightly greased sheets.  Bake 10-12 minutes until barely golden at the edges.

Optional:  For a drier, more shortbread-ish cookie:
Skip the milk;
Use 20% rice flour (1/2 cup or 75grams);
Lower the sugar to 1/2 cup brown sugar.

Bake longer at lower temp (325) until barely golden
