    My little cookie monster

    What to do on a rainy Friday afternoon, with a three year old attached to your side.

    Maybe something we both!!

    We would seriously spend at least a couple of afternoons a week in the kitchen. Ever since Joel could stand by himself, all he has wanted to do is "help mummy". I think it's great. We never put a safety gate in front of the kitchen, he was always welcome. He knew what drawers he was allowed to open, what was out of bounds, and he learnt very early on what 'hot' and 'sharp' meant.

    So i have been dying to try these sugar cookies for ages now, ever since I saw them on the 'bubble & sweet' website, and this was the perfect opportunity. Especially since I had my little helper!
    Did he have a good time or what. I gave him full range of my cookie cutters. Naturally there was more than the fair share of dinosaurs cut. I snuck in a few flowers and doves here and there, so in the end we were both happy with the mix.

    VANILLA COOKIES (recipe provided by CRe8acake)

    125g unsalted butter
    125g caster sugar
    1 egg
    1/4 tesp vanilla extract
    1 cup plain flour
    1 cup SR flour

    Preheat oven to 160C
    Line a baking tray with paper
    Beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy
    Add egg and vanilla and beat well
    Fold in the flours to form a soft dough.
    Roll to 5 mm. Cut with cutters.
    Bake approximate 8-12 min
    Cool on wire rack

    After the cooking, I inserted cookie sticks into the flower shapes while still warm.
    24 hours later and it was time to decorate!!
