Recipe was taken from a book “ideals Homemade Desserts” the chapter on Cakes page 5.  The original recipe was called Pumpkin Sheet Cake which instead of butter as I used was a cup of vegetable oil and there was no creaming method.   Reason for not using the original recipe at the time I did have any vegetable oil in stock.  (copy of original recipe herewith).

Comments:-
I have made these cookies several times over the years and have enjoyed making them each time.  They are very tasty and melt in your mouth.  They are great to work with when pressing. 
Here is a comment from Wilton on the back of the box.
"This recipe works very well with the cookie press.  The dough is not chilled and is easiest to use within two hours of preparation.  The dough can also be colored with food colors."
