2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
5 - 6 eggs
In another bowl mix together:
5 cups flour
2 cups cornstarch (Maizena)
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
Beat the dry ingredients into the first mixture, when it gets to hard for the beaters, use a wooden spoon to mix. Cover the dough with a lid or plastic bag and place in the fridge for an hour or overnight.
Use a meat grinder with a cookie press part in front (see picture), or a cookie press and press the dough into cookie shapes. Place the cookies onto an ungreased cookie pan. Bake at med. heat for about 12 minutes.
You can also roll balls (slightly smaller than ping-pong balls) and place them in a hot waffle iron and bake the cookies in small batches.
You can dip one end of each cookie into melted chocolate and sprinkle peanut pieces onto them, or pour melted chocolate on the cookies made in the waffle iron.
This is a cookie press attachment that you screw onto a meat grinder.
You don't need these parts to make the cookies.
This is how to place the cookies onto the baking pans.
