When the weather turned FREEZING and we had nothing on the Sunday schedule, I scrambled and found
my hidden bottle of Kahlua a cookie recipe to try out with the Kid.
With her, it almost always has to be
the opposite of whatever Mommy would want sugar cookies.
But unlike so many other sugar cookies, these have a HANDS ON component your child will love. A great way to avoid
playing more video games, well, playing more video games.
Who knew they had so many recipes in that butter world? I only searched Google images for “thanksgiving cookies,” and these popped up.
I don’t know why I never just used the images feature for finding cookie recipes, but doesn’t it make sense? Cut to the chase and show me the goods! You’re welcome.
So, just like their blog showed, we mixed up our dough, divided into thirds and mixed in food coloring. We used a mashing-fork method, but you could do the playdough-hand-squeezing method. I just wasn’t sure if we’d end up with fall colored fingers at Christmas….
Then wrap and
play video games cool for a few hours in the fridge.
Once it’s firm, make
your child make little clumps, about Zoobles Swedish meatball size.
Squeeze your dough balls together
and begin our isometrics to roll out as one sheet.
Next, have your child get the leaf shaped cookie cutter and put her to work!
We sprinkled colored sugar over them and
licked our fingers popped ’em in the oven.
Et voila! Aren’t they cute?!
Not to pat myself on the back, but *pats* I’m really impressed with how they look! *pats again*
So if we can do this, you definitely can. You could even get Christmas colors and use holiday shaped cutters, too. Like red, white, and green ornaments or trees cookies.
