Gluten Free Lemon Shell Cookies Using Oxo Good Grips Cookie Disk Set

Hi readers, how's it going only one more day till the weekend, whoop! 

Today I am going to tell you about my new favourite kitchen gadget, now I am a sucker for kitchen gadgets especially when they make your food look pretty so when I got the offer to try the new Oxo Good Grips Cookie Press I got super excited. One because I love cookies and two I love shaped cookies even more! 

The cookie press comes with 12 different disks perfect for all occasions. The great thing about having a set like this is the cookies all come out exactly the same which is something I always find hard when making my cookies by hand. I also love the fact that it is nice and sturdy, easy to clean and is lots of fun to use! Gotta love a fun kitchen gadget : )

Last Friday I had invited Jes and her hubby round for dinner, remember the curry? Well as they were coming round it was the perfect opportunity for me to try out my new cookie cutter to make a yummy pudding, knowing there were others to help me and Dale eat the goodies! I went with the shell design as I love that shape so here are the yummy cookies I made....

(gluten free, paleo)

1 + 1/3 cup almond flour
2 Tbsp coconut flour, sifted
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp sea salt

1/4 cup coconut oil
1 lemon, zest and juice


Add all the dry ingredients to a mix bowl, remembering to sift the coconut flour, combine. 

In a separate bowl combine the wet ingredients including the lemon zest.

Add wet ingredients to dry and combine.

Put cookie dough in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to firm up, pre-heat oven to 180. 

Once the dough has firmed fill the cookie press and press cookies out on to a baking tray lined with parchment paper. (This mix made around 35 cookies)

Place cookies in the oven and bake for 4-5 minutes, until golden.

Remove cookies and wait 5 minutes before moving them onto a wire rack to cool


These turned out perfectly, crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, perfect cookies! 

I served my cookies with some soy ice cream which was a great combo, they all loved them and polished off the tin, cookie success!! 

Basically I can't rate this cookie press set enough, I love it! It looks good and it works fabulously all in all a great kitchen gadget. I can't wait to try the other disks and make more cookies and eat them of course! 


Have you tried using a cookie cutter like this, whats your favourite cookie flavour?


  1. Wow this is really cool! They look so professional. Love that you served them with ice cream as well. Nice idea.

    1. Had to be done! I love it it does make the cookies look professional your right!

  2. Wow, i didn't guess these were from a cookie press. I have one too (different brand though) it's so cool! I feel like a kid with a toy when I use it :-) Love that this recipe is grain-free AND vegan.. perfect for me! Sounds really good, I'll give it a go sometime...

    1. I know so much fun!! Let me know if you try the recipe out x

  3. They sound lovely, I love lemony things!
    I used to have a cookie press like this but the dough kept getting stuck in it, and I tend to bake softer cookies that spread anyway, so I got rid of it. Yours look fab though- think they are better for shortbread style cookies.

    1. Yes lemon is probably my favourite flavour for cakes and cookies...this dough was a little soft which is why I stuck it in the fridge for a bit but I have to say this oxo press is super sturdy

  4. They look so gorgeous, lemony flavoured things this time of year taste so good!

    1. Thank you! I would have to agree lemon rules!
