1. Remove Flexible Lid
There are 7 individual molding/shaping discs that can be removed and placed on the counter or work surface. There is an 8th additional disc snapped in place at the bottom or narrow end, of the body.
Holding the body of the product with the top/wide end towards you, gently press down with your thumbs on the disc (increasing pressure as needed) in the top/wide end until the disc snaps out of place at the bottom/narrow end.
2. Insert a Disc
IMPORTANT! Each disc has a top and a bottom. They will not snap in place if upside down.
Examine each disc and look for the Cookies in a Snap logo. The logo should be facing you when you insert the disc into the bottom of the product. Once you can read the logo, simply insert a disc and steady the disc with both
thumbs inside the body of the product and with your fingers at the bottom of the disc. Press the disc upwards
until you hear a snap. You are now ready to use “Cookies in a Snap”.
3. Rolling Dough
IMPORTANT! – The “Cookies in a Snap” system is design to be used with 1/4” dough thickness. Thinner dough will not fill the mold and thicker dough will not be cut out cleanly. There are two ways to achieve the proper thickness. 1. Use two 1/4” wooden dowels cut to approximately a 12” length. They are available at Home Depot or Lowe’s. This is the easiest and most economical. 2. Use elastic thickness rings that fit on your rolling pin or flat plastic strips available in both stores and on-line.
Sprinkle work surface with flour. Place a portion of the dough on the work surface. Sprinkle the dough with
flour. Roll dough to 1/4” thickness using the dowels or other method. The flattened dough must be sprinkled with
flour. Rub the surface of the dough with the flour so there are no tacky/sticky areas. Sticky surfaces will cause
the dough to stick to the molding/shaping discs.
4. Press & Cut Dough
Press the bottom/narrow end straight down on the dough. You will see the dough filling in the mold. Press somewhat firmly until the mold is filled and the work surface is contacted. Lift straight up off the dough. Repeat the process. Continue to mold/shape cookies until all of the flattened dough has been used.
If the dough sticks to the mold, press the disc out of the body and peel off the dough to possibly save the cookie. If sticking is a problem, increase the amount of flour sprinkled and rubbed on the flatten dough. Peal away excess un-molded dough.
5. Change your Disc
There are 8 different design discs. Feel free to change at any time as each one works with the same thickness of the dough!
6. Perfectly Pressed and Shaped
Using Cookies in a Snap will allow you to press and shape your dough into 8 different designs, including the famous “thumbprint cookie”.
7. Lift and Place
Using a cookie spatula, remove molded/shaped cookies from the work surface and place on baking pan. Follow recipe instructions for the baking of the cookies.
8. Perfect Cookies
Allow cookies to cool. Eat or decorate as desired.
