Sugar Cookies

Made this particularly for the kids to play with cookies cutters
This cookies taste delicious, and the dough is pretty easy to handle, which is important since I'm playing with the kids :)
The cookies is a little crunchy at the edges and soft at the centre
If you want to make it crunchy all over, you can roll the dough thinner and adjust the baking time



These are my favorite cutters...eeerrrr...is it really that Minnie is bigger than Mickey? :P

Recipe is from Rima's site

At first, I didn't want to do the icing, playing with the cutters was fun enough, but they asked to decorate the cookies, so I said okay, allright....

Unfortunately, I didn't do it correctly, I didn't beat the egg whites stiff enough, resulting in runny icing wew....
Couldn't manage to reverse the situation, I said to the kids to do the decoration next time somewhere nearer to Christmas day, but they insisted to do just a few pieces
Feeling guilty cos the mistake was on my side, I said ok

So, here are the few pieces, my kids' first cookies masterpiece - with runny icing, with a little help from me LOL


Those cookies can be named disastrous cookies haha... but my kids love them, kept on staring at them, and of course munched on them nonstop :)
I saw them admiring them and it's like a reminder to me how we adults at times have to follow kids attitude, in certain things, to be easily contented :)

I told them, let's find nice Christmas cookies cutters first and we can make more cookies with decorations for Christmas day
And they said, "Yyyeeeaaahhhhh!!!!!"
