Here’s the story of how our company came to be…

The Story of how Impress! Bakeware™ was born…

I’ve been baking spritz cookies for as long as I can remember. My mom handed me a cookie press as soon as I was old enough to hold one, teaching me how to gently squeeze soft dough onto cookie sheets, and how to shake a bottle of sanding sugar with just the right amount of finesse. I mastered those fun skills and I’ve been hooked on petite melt-in-your-mouth cookies ever since!

Spritz cookies are a tradition in my family. Every Christmas my mom, brother & I would press out dozens of Christmas tree and wreath shaped cookies, sprinkling them with sanding sugars and decorating the trees with little “stars” on top and colored sugar or nonpareils as “lights”. Aromas of cookies baking in the oven, and sights of bowls of dough and bottles of sanding sugars on the kitchen table are some of my favorite holiday memories.

But the rest of the year? Our poor cookie press probably got lonely. Stuffed away back in its cabinet, pulled out only occasionally in the spring- if we remembered that there was a butterfly disk in the press box. Using pastel sugars to make butterflies was a nice change from the bright colors of Christmas cookies, but I’d always longed for more ways to use a press.

Let’s face it. The disks that come with most cookie press kits are… hmm… nice, but pretty boring. It seems the designs haven’t changed in 50 years, and they are mostly just geometric patterns. When compared to the world of cutout cookies (where any shape under the sun seems to exist!) cookie press shapes come off as dull.

I set out to change all that. I wanted the cookie press to be as versatile and as much fun as any set of cookie cutters. I wanted everyone to be able to “get creative with their cookie press”. So after much research into manufacturing and materials, and several years of disk designing and re-designing, we bring you Impress™ cookie press disks.

And so our company, Impress! Bakeware™ was born. Your cookie press? It’s NOT just for Christmas anymore!

Enjoy your cookie presses as never before, and please contact us anytime. We love to hear from you. Impress! Bakeware, LLC Is a family-owned company, started by two moms (who happen to be sisters-in-law and best friends!) with a love of cookies. From our families to yours, keep on baking!

  1. I’m so excited to find your site! We make our own crackers and they are always squares. That will not be the case any more. I can’t wait until your up and running again.

    1. Thanks Maureen! I have a lot of cookie presses and use many of them, but my 2 favorites are the OXO Good Grips press (which takes our size M or P disks) and the Wilton Simple Success (used to be Comfort Grip) Press (which takes our size P disks).


  2. OMG! I can’t wait for y’all to be back! My boyfriend absolutely loves his Mirro cookie press that he got from his grandmother, but has run into the same issue you did, that it seems so lonely the rest of the year. Since the press is so old, we particularly despaired finding replacement disks, let alone newer contemporary designs. He’s getting at least two sets for Yuletide this year.

    In another vein, what technique do you recommend for applying sanding sugar to the tops of spritz cookies? Sprinkling wastes a lot, so we’ve been using fingertips very lightly moistened with oil (by handling a piece of dough). I can’t help but feel like there might be something better than what we are currently doing.

    Y’all are awesome!

    1. Hi Lyndsey! What a fun message. Thank you! My favorite way to apply sanding sugars is to partially fill a spoon and tap the edge of it to let some sugar fall off the tip or edge. It does allow for more control and less waste. Not a perfect solution, but an improvement for sure. Happiest of baking to you both! ~Susie the Disk Designer


  3. Hi! How’s it going? Are you any closer to reopening? I’m just kicking myself for not buying the Halloween disks when they were available. Please come back…


  4. Hello.
    I see you’re out but is there anyway to order some of the sets? I have been going a bit crazy with my press and fell upon yours and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! I would more than appreciate being sent a link or put on an email list to purchase every disc you have.


    1. Hi Terri thanks for your enthusiasm, I truly appreciate it! As of now there isn’t a way to order sets, (they’re in storage) but I’m brainstorming. If anything changes I will post it here, on our facebook page, and on the website. Sorry for the inconvenience! ~Susie the Disk Designer


      1. Hi Susie ~ I definitely understand that moving or reorganizing an entire company with life can take time. I truly pray as we all wait hopefully with patience, understanding and prayer for your families you are coming closer to your Grand Opening! I know, I want at least one of every disc you have. (There’s an order) I don’t care what it cost… I make cookies for everyone and every occasion. I have came up with several recipes, just fooling around that work real nice and taste great. Some have had requests for parties…. until the fun starts with your discs, seems cookies are so much better made with a press. I would also be happy to share the recipes once we all get rolling. Hopefully by mother’s day you have so many pretty ones for Mom. Even dad would be happy with a nice nut cookie to share with the friends.
        Anyway, you have a wonderful season and don’t work too hard, I will wait as long as it takes.
        God Bless & Happy Baking


  5. I just discovered you as well and would love to buy some discs when you are back up and running. How do we find out when that is the case?


  6. Just found your site going down a rabbit hole looking for the allusive angel for my heirloom cookie press. Cannot wait until your back up and running!! Hope to expand my Christmas disk collection and add more for other occasions in 2019. Beautiful craftsmanship!


  7. Have a happy and safe Holiday Season. I truly hope you are up and running soon. I just can’t wait to start getting these sets… the cookies look awesome and I may end the idea of a cake business and do a cookie business. They look like so much fun with the different shapes for the holidays, and events. God Bless you all. 🎄


  8. Hi Susie, eagerly awaiting your reboot. I love spritz shapes. If there’s anything you need help with that a stranger could offer to help with, let me know. I’ve been waiting for your return to sales! I’ve worked in marketing and merchandising and SO LOVE your press disks.


  9. Hi Susie, eagerly awaiting your reboot. I love spritz shapes. If there’s anything you need help with that a stranger could offer to help with, let me know, I’m willing to help to make sure Impress stays up and running! I’ve worked in marketing and merchandising and SO LOVE your press disks.
    Hope to hear you are back soon. -Jenn


    1. Hi Jenn! Thanks for your enthusiasm! Please see our newest closure notice. There is a chance I may re-open the business someday, so I may reach out to you if that happens. I LOVE working with people who LOVE spritz disks as much as I do! The reason for the shutdown has to do with my daughter’s health and me not having the time to run this crazy, time-consuming business. From manufacturing to marketing there is a LOT that goes on behind the scenes, as I’m sure you get. I’ll make sure to keep in touch with you if anything changes. **Thank** you for the awesome message! ~Susie


      1. So sorry to find your product just after you shut down. We hope that your daughter gets recovers as soon as possible so you and your family may get back to a normal routine. (And by that I do mean normal, not the hectic chaos of running a business on your own.) Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

        If you do ever get things together and restart or hold a closeout sale of the existing stock, please add me to your email list of folks to notify.


  10. Do you have a design to create a block M. It could be with other sports oriented items or by itself. I have the dimensions for the finished distances but need to have it created.
    Please let me know if you can or can direct me to someone else who can create this.
