Cut Out Cookies/20mins cookie recipe

175g butter
200g sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla essence
375g sifted plain flour

Have kids stand around the counter and get them to get the ingredients ready. Once all the ingredients are ready, let's start the actual work. (well, if you don't have kids, but still would like the cookies, just follow the numbers..haha)

1) Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla essence in a bowl. Add the sifted flour, egg, egg yolk, until it comes together as a dough. Wrap in cling wrap and refrigerate it till firm.

Now, divide the dough and lprepare each kids work station. It consists of a floured board, rolling pin and cookie cutter and then the kids will handle it from here.

2) Put the dough on a floured work surface, and place bigger sheet of cling wrap over it. Roll out dough to about 6mm thick.

3) Then, cut out dough with cookie cutters!

4) Once done, place cookies on sheets, and bake for 10 mins. Watch it closely as it gets burnt easily.


Chocolate ones: add bit of milo
