Thereof, how do you use the Pampered Chef Cookie Press gun?
Fill cookie press 2/3 full (try a star shape until you are better at it - that kind of shape is easiest - I used #4). Press onto COOL stone. I then pressed remaining dough onto parchment so that I could do it when the dough was still the right temperature. Bake the cookies as directed.
Also, how do spritz cookies hold their shape? A half hour in the refrigerator, covered, helps firm it up a bit before you put it into the cookie press. This is also a good time to chill your baking sheets. This extra step will help your cookies hold their shape as they set up in the oven.
Subsequently, one may also ask, why does cookie dough stick to cookie press?
As far as sticking to the baking pan itself is concerned, just line it with parchment paper and don't grease it. If you've made the dough properly then it will "set" and not sink. FWIW, I also find it easier to pipe spritz cookies than to use a cookie press. Chill the cookie sheets in between batches.
What can I use instead of a cookie press?
For a quick fix without a cookie press, roll out the dough on a lightly-floured board. Form a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Cut out shapes with a cookie cutter. If you don't have cookie cutters, use a glass or odd-shaped lid.
