- Add the cookie batter into the cookie press and press cookies onto the prepared baking sheet. At this point, you can add sprinkles if you wish.
- Bake in the preheated oven, on the center rack in the middle of the oven for best results, and bake in batches.
- When the cookies are done, allow them to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer them to a wire cooling rack. Decorate with icing if you wish.
