If you don't have a cookie press, make the cookies as directed, but refrigerate the dough until it's firm enough to roll into balls. Omit the egg whites and roll the cookies in the cinnamon sugar mixture like you would for Snickerdoodles. Proceed as directed. You may need to increase the baking time for regular size cookies.
These cookies will never replace the Christmas cookies from my childhood, but they're a nice alternative this year since I'm pressed for time.
