Happy Cookies for the long weekend

It's Labour Day today.... and school will be closed on next Monday too :( Its long weekends here in Singapore... meaning my 2 girls will be home to make me crazy in the next 3 days :(

Think these cookies will keep them busy munching for some time :D
They look kinda pretty with these Strawberry chocolate kisses + hundreds & thousands color balls....
The r just the same old butter cookies... but the girls just love them so much!!
Butter Cookies
  • 250g Fairprice Brand butter
  • 1 egg
  • 120g sugar
  • 350g Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanillin powder
Cream the wet ingredients using electric mixer till fluffy. Combine the dry ingredients to the creamed, wet ingredients until just blended

Wrap the above dough with cling wrap and refrigerate for half an hour.

Preheat oven to 180°c. and Roll out dough to about 0.5cm thickness, cut out to your desired shape, using cookie cutters. Decorate with whatever toppings u like... I'm using Strawberry Chocolate kisses + hundreds & thousands color balls for this batch of cookies
Bake on ungreased baking sheet for 15mins
Remove from oven and leave on tray to cool for at least 5mins before transferring them to the cooling rack. Make sure cookies are completely cooled before keeping them in air-tight container for storage.

Above ingredients makes 1-1/2 jars of cookiezz... sorry, I forgot to count the actual number again :D
Btw, u dun have to use up all the cookie dough at one shot... u can keep the balance, cling wrapped tightly in the fridge for up to a week... and my teacher even say can keep in freezer for up to 3 mths!!! but i have not tried to do so yet :P
