Quite Simply - CUTE AS A BUTTON!

I had an oddly productive morning recently. I decided to make biscuits with josh. I started with a basic biscuit recipe (see below) and adapted it to make three types of bikkies out of the same batch.

1. HIGH-FIVE COOKIE: After dough had chilled I rolled it out and got Joshua to do a handprint in the dough and cut it out. Its a bit fragile to transfer to another sheet of baking paper, so just bake it on that sheet. This cookie looks darker cause i made sure i left it in a little longer so it wouldnt snap too easily.
2. BUTTON COOKIE: Once rolled out, find two different sized glasses or circle cutters. Press one in all the way through the dough to form first circle. Press second glass/ cutter only a little way in to form the border. Using a chopstick (or similar) press the 4 circles in the middle. 3. RAINBOW COOKIE: Then hand mix in some sprinkles to the rest of the mixture and form by hand.

185g butter
1 cup castor sugar
1.5 tsp vanilla extract (add 1 tsp if using essence)

2.5 cups of pl flour
1 egg + 1 egg yolk extra

Preheat oven to 180'C. Process butter and sugar in food processor till smooth. Add flour, egg, and egg yolk and process again to form a smooth dough. Knead lightly and refridgerate for 30 mins. Roll out the dough between sheets of baking powder. Cut into shapes (see above) and bake for 10-12 mins. Cool on wire rack. ENJOY!!!

** I wanted to ice the "High 5" bikkies but they were eaten too quickly....good sign i suppose**
