I needed an easy cookie cutter recipe in a hurry and I found this brilliant recipe online here planningwithkids.com/2010/0...
*Original recipe says to use self raising flour but I didnt have any so added extra baking powder & salt.
I want to use my own photos to show exactly how easy this is, I have never made cookies before and I think this recipe is almost completely non-fail!
My biggest mistakes were
1) choosing a star shape (the points overcooked so fast!)
2) rolling the dough too thin or too thick (I was flustered due to time constraints).
Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl
I found this a little hard because my baking paper was so slippery and it was hard to roll, next time I might try cling wrap instead.
TIP: Spray cookie cutters with cooking spray or grease the edges (not too much). This makes it easier to pop the dough out from the cookie cutter.
Roll out remaining dough and repeat until finished.
I love this recipe, not bad for my first attempt and I think it will get easier the more I make it but Im very grateful to the lady who posted the original recipe.
