Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C or 350°F.
  2. Beat all of the ingredients together except for the two flours.
  3. When well beaten, add all of the flour and mix until well blended, the  dough should be firm enough to hold its shape when pressed (you can adjust firmness by adding either milk or flour, a little at a time).
  4. Using a cookie press with a star tip, pipe a rope of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Cut the rope into 5 to 6 inch lengths, and then shape into an S (alternatively, you can make simple drop cookies).
  6. Bake for about 15  to 17 minutes until the cookies are  light colored, then remove them from the oven, pile all of them on sheet and return to a 100°C or 200°F oven for 25 minutes to add crispiness.

Donna, if you are using a mobile phone, when you click on a recipe on Facebook, it opens up the recipe on the Facebook app, the Facebook app does not support printing, so what you do is, when you click on a recipe on Facebook and it opens on the Facebook app, click on the 3 dots on the bottom, right corner of your screen and select open in browser. Then you will be able to print it. Let me know if this worked for you.
