When I made the Eggless Basic Cookie Dough, I had in mind a whole bunch of cookies to try with it and one among them was sugar cookies. I had planned a simple cookie and when I got ready to bake, I changed my mind and add peppermint essence to give it a different flavor. And when my eyes fell on the box of sugar hearts, I knew I could make the cookies more colorful by using the colorful sugar hearts!
Aren't they pretty to look at!!!
1/5 portion of the Eggless Basic Cookie Dough weighing approx. 160 grams
Peppermint essence- a few drops
Sugar hearts - a few, crushed [ not powdered]
Add a few drops of the essence to the dough and mix in gently.
Take a portion of the dough and roll it into a thin disc. Using small cookie cutters punch out the dough. Place the colorful sugar crystals got from crushing the sugar heats in a wide plate and place the cut out shapes on teh sugar. Press gently so that the sugar sticks to the dough.
Place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees for 8 minutes or till the bottom of the cookies turn light brown.Carefully remove from the tray and let it cool.
Crispy sugary cookies are ready!!!
This is my third post for Blogging Marathon #71, Week 1, Day 3, themed 'Kid’s Delight – Birthday Snacks'.This is also the theme that Archana has chosen for the Kids delight event that she is hosting this month.
- The number of cookies for this quantity of dough will depend on the
size of the cookie cutter and also the thickness of the rolled dough.
- I made a huge batch as I used very small cookie cutters.
- The baking time will also vary with the size of the cookies and the thickness.
- The cookies will be soft as soon as they come out of the oven and
will turn crisp after they cool.Else bake again for a few more minutes.
- Roll out the dough into even thickness else the baking time will differ and thinner ones will burn.
- You can use regular granulated white sugar instead of the colored sugar.
