    2 ½ c sifted flour
    ½ tsp salt
    ¼ tsp. cinnamon

    my sister has mom's. i had to get mine on ebay. got two. lol, i wanted a spare.




  • RE: old mirror cookie press recipes
    I posted all the cookie recipes in the book. I believe there are 7 posts. I had 2 mirro cookie presses. one was copper and this one is aluminum. I wish I still had the copper one. One of the regrets was giving it away.
    Oh well, live and learn.

    I believe they stopped making the mirro cookie presses at least a few to several years ago.
  • RE: old mirror cookie press recipes
    Thanks for the recipes. More importantly, THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES. I just crawled around on the floor to get into the cabinet under the bar and found my Mom's cookie press. It is the aluminum Mirro cookie press and the postmark is still visible. It arrived in time for Christmas in 1953. That year we filled the kitchen with cookies.

    If I remember correctly it was a flash in the pan sort of thing and we didn't use it much after the first couple of years, but we had a ball making cookies. I recommend getting one if you get the chance.

    Again, thanks for the recipes.

    BTW, beside the cookie press I found the Ecko Miracle French Fry Potato Cutter!! Both are in their original box.

    I may have to try the french fry cutter just so I can say I did!!
