Retro, Mirro Cookie Press, Lemon Crisps!

I was VERY excited to find my new cookie Press Thursday while Thrifting.

My first attempt is a Lemon Crisp recipe from the 1950’s manual.The press works VERY well and is a simple cleanup.I thought I would dip some in Melted Milk Chocolate…They tasted FAR better than they look!
