Classic Cut Out Sugar Cookies Seduction in The Kitchen

Christmas is coming! I have my annual Christmas party this week. Normally I do these cute gift bags for my guests, but this year I have had issues with my mail. I been working out-of-town for my job for 3 days a week, so I been putting my mail on hold while I am out-of-town. Why am I doing that? Well I had a few packages get delivered and someone stole them, and yes they were items for the gift bags. All is not lost, I decided to do something a little more heartfelt homemade cookies. I am doing some nice goodie bags this year for the party.

When I came to this idea, at first I thought 12 days of Christmas cookies, I would post on Seduction in the Kitchen. Well with all this travel I have to do, I realized that would not work. Still I want to do some cookie posts, just not going to do the 12 I had thought I could do. I admit I do love making Christmas cookies, so I am looking forward to seeing my friends faces when I give them these goodie bags at the party.

9249906a68199a3758d76d64a4fb5821f552ae47With all the baking I will be doing, I actually got a Cookeezi Citrus Juice Press to review. This is perfect! I use lots of fresh lemon juice in many recipes. I got to use this to juice the oranges for my Orange Cherry Cranberry Sauce for Thanksgiving. In fact, here is a photo of me using the press on one the oranges:

Bottom line I love this kitchen gadget! I get more juice out the fruits with it then I have with a plastic twisty juicer. Here is some info from the website:

18/10 stainless steel material to make the squeezer. (18) refers to the amount of Chromium and (10) the Nickle content in the stainless steel. Studies have shown this is the perfect blend to give optimal strength, shine and a rust-resistance product. Unlike plastic lemon squeezers we use non toxic materials so no bad chemicals are passed into your body from long-term use.

Ergonomically designed to give more juice from your lemons and limes for less effort and hassle.  The long handles gives you better mechanical advantage getting the juicer to do the hard work for you!
Speed in the kitchen is also maximised by ease of cleaning by either chucking it in the dishwasher or you can just run it over with soapy water and a quick wipe, this will leave your juicer looking like new.   This juicer will last you the test of time!

I love this press so much that I am Cookeezi is offering you the readers of Seduction in the Kitchen a special discount, click here to see this special discount they have for you. I really do enjoy it and I know once you use it you see how this really is so much better ten those twisty juicers, and you get so much more juice out the fruit with it.

So since I got this trusty, juicer, it perfect for using on some these cookie recipes! I know I got a lemon tea cake one that I will be using it on. In the meantime how about a timeless classic cookie, a simple cut out cookie. Every Christmas cookie tray has them, they are fun to decorate. Kids love cutting out the shapes. They are classic, I love the butterery richness of these cookies. I finally figured out the secret to the colored sugar and getting to have stay on the cookies. I put it on after they come out the oven, Of course it doesn’t stay on. I finally asked someone I know that worked in a bakery to the secret, Put the sugar on just before you pop them in the oven. The heat melts them slightly and the sugar stays on.
