We all know the time will come when your little just needs something sweet and sugary. But rather than getting them for the shop or supermarket, why not try your hand at it and make it into a family activity?
These cute looking glazed cookies are great way to experiment with different kinds of toppings. Making them varied and diverse will surely put a smile on your little ones.
Ingredients and Directions:
2.) Divide the dough in half. Wrap each half with plastic and chill for at least 1 hour, or up to 3 days.
3.) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface roll out each dough portion to about 1/8-inch thickness. To make rolling easier for the kids, roll the dough out between sheets of parchment paper or plastic wrap. Using 3-inch hat or glove shaped cookie cutters, cut out 18 cookies, re-rolling scraps as needed. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottom.
4.) Cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack; cool completely.
5.) To decorate, In a medium bowl whisk together the powdered sugar and 3 tsp. milk, adding additional milk as needed to reach a thick but spreadable icing. Tint with a few drops of food coloring. Then add coconut for cozy cuffs and cute pom-poms, plus decorating sprinkles as desired. And you’re done. Enjoy!
