These cookies are such a hit that we decided to include them in our October boxes. Those lucky enough to receive them got an animal shaped cookie cutter in their box too!
Time needed: 25 minutes
Learning potential: measuring, using a cutter, safe oven use, mixing
Ingredients: (to make 36 cookies)
185g butter, softened
¾ cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups plain flour
- Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Line 3 baking trays with baking paper.
- Get your monkey to hold the electric mixer and beat butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy. Add egg. Beat until combined. Sift in flour over butter mixture and use a wooden spoon to combine.
- Using a rolling pin, roll out the mixture between 2 sheets of baking paper and use the cutter to make the shapes. Place cookies 4cm apart on prepared trays. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
