Bake a Difference with OXO for Cookies for Kids' Cancer

Welcome back from the 3 day weekend! Hope you are all rested and are ready to jump back into work...I know I'm not :/

One of the fun activities I did this weekend, other than dancing, brunch, and a visit to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, was bake Spritz cookies! This was my first time ever using a cookie press, and I loved it.

This blog post is another collaboration with oxo. As always, I'm not being compensated for this post: I received products from oxo to try in my kitchen and am sharing my opinions with you.

This year, OXO will donate up to $100,000 to Cookies for Kids' Cancer. Cookies for Kids' Cancer is a recognized 501c(3) public charity duly incorporated under the laws of the state of New Jersey. 100% of proceeds raised by Cookies fund pediatric cancer research. Visit OXO or for more information.

The Cookie Press was incredibly easy to use and clean. I liked the fact that it was simple to change the disks and ended up using four flower themed disks to make cookies. Oxo also sent me an additional set of fall related disks, which I'll have to try once the weather cools down a bit.

I was already familiar with the OXO pizza pan, and expected the same great performance from the Non Stick Pro Cookie Sheet. It has a great weight to it, is nonstick, easy to clean, and allows your baked goods to brown easily. 

Finally, even though I have plenty of spatulas, both metal and silicon, this one from oxo was the perfect size for the cookies! It's sturdy despite its little size and has a flexible edge that allows you to easily get under the cookies. Please make it in fun colors oxo!!

My friend Kate sent me a recipe for Spritz Cookies from America's Test Kitchen baking book. I also found it here. Butter, sugar, flour, and a few other ingredients are all you need, and I actually had everything on hand! 

The cookies smelled delicious, were super buttery, and not too sweet. I shared them with my friends, neighbors, and condo office workers.

Let me know how you use your cookie press!
