A cookie press is essential for these subtly scented treats. While we chose the wreath disc, feel free to use any disc you like; however, the yield may vary. Be sure to sift the icing sugar before measuring.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 1/4 cup sifted icing sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 pinch salt
Orange Glaze:
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream (35%)
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest minced
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

Method

Orange Glaze: In bowl, whisk together icing sugar, cream, orange zest and orange juice until smooth; set aside.

In bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. Whisk together flour, cardamom and salt; stir into butter mixture.

Spoon into cookie press; press out wreaths, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, onto chilled, unlined and ungreased baking sheets.
