We have a visitor for 3 days last week, Wednesday we made muffins and on Thursday we made funny face cookies. They are definitely not healthy and making them will leave you house looking like a confectionery and icing bomb went of but they are soooooo much fun and the kids love it.
This is the basic cookie dough recipe that I use
  • 180g butter
  • 11/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon imitation vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 11/2 tsp baking powder
1. Beat butter and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; beat well. Sift flour and baking powder into creamed mixture. Mix well.
2. Divide mixture in half. Roll into a sausage shape about 3cm in diameter. Wrap each roll in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm.
3. Unwrap. Slice thinly using a sharp knife. Place on greased baking trays. Allow room for spreading. Bake at 180C for 10-15 minutes, or until golden. Cool on trays for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
