Nothing Fancy here, just teaching my four year old son the ABC'c and the ABC'c of baking. Had fun making these alphabet cookies with him, and more fun watching it get wiped out. Very simple recipe, with easily "available at home ingredients".
Must warn you of its addictive quality, only if I could borrow the line "no one can eat just one" for a bit, to go with these cookies. It's taste reminds me of some cookie I used to munch on in my childhood days, takes me back in time, just can't quite put my finger on it. (Let me know if you find out)
Kid for a day feeling!!
Store in airtight container, stays crisp for at least 2-3 days maybe more if any remain. :)So just go ahead and try them with cookie cutters of your choice. Enjoy!!
- Unsalted butter- 1/2 cup (softened)
- Cream cheese- 3oz or 6 triangles
- White sugar- 1 cup
- Egg- 1
- Vanilla extract- 1/2 tsp
- All purpose flour-2 cups
- Baking powder- 1/2 tsp
- 1In a mixing bowl, beat the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light, creamy and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour and baking powder, stir into the creamy mixture till a smooth dough forms.
- 2Divide the dough into two parts, cover with cling film and chill until firm, for about an hour.
- 3Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters (here I used Alphabet shaped cookie cutter) and place the cookies atleast 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
- 4Bake for 7-9 mins in the preheated oven, until bottoms are lightly browned and cookies are firm. Remove and cool on wire racks. Enjoy!
