Any ways as I was saying my daughter Amelie
So I have dug in my lovely pink folder (my recipe folder) for the most basic cookie for her to do as she insists to do it by herself. And what I came up with is this vanilla cookie. You can find this recipe almost every where. Not sure where I originally got this from but it is so child friendly I thought it would be ideal for her. You will have to forgive me all t he photo's as I am having a proud mummy minute. The only thing she did not do was transfer the cookies to and from the oven and the whisk the egg white powder.
What you need:
10 oz plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
100g caster sugar
3 oz butter
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
What you do:
In a bowl sift in your flour and baking powder,
Place your dough in cling film
Pre heat your oven to 170oC and line some baking trays with grease proof paper.
Flour your work top knead your dough for a few minutes roll out
Remove from the oven and leave on your baking tray for about 5 minutes or until they start to firm up. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
To decorate the cookies she used Royal Icing . For this I whisked the egg white powder up for her then Amelie got shift in the icing sugar
I then put the icing in the bottles for Amelie and let her decorate her cookies.
Amelie was also nice enough to let her brother Aron have some of her cookies to decorate.
Here is some photos of Amelie at work and her finished result
So that Amelie could get a heart shape on the round cookie she place a cookie cutter on the biscuit and piped icing inside it. I then carefully lifted the cookie off for her so that she could decorate it.
Here is the proud little baker with her finished biscuits.
Even if I do say so my self I think my daughter has done really well. All that is left is take them round to her friends and boyfriends. What left we get to eat, which I must admit I am looking forward to tasting.
