Yummy Cookies!

Baked this Cream Cheese Cookie sometime back... Just that I'm just too plain lazy to update my little bloggie.. Keke!

This cream cheese cookie taste like those Commercial Danish Cookies that comes in a round tin box.. It is slightly crispy on the outside, but soft and melt in the mouth inside.. So it's quite an interesting texture..

I made the cookies in different shapes.. Flowers, heart, star, pig... Etc..

I colour part of the cookie dough GREEN, while the rest plain. I had such a fun time rolling out the dough, cutting them and assembling them together.. Haha!

I'm so childish I know.. =P But doing cut out doughs reminds me of playdough/ plasticine.. Something I enjoy playing during the childhood days..

Spot the heart shape cookie with eyes and a smiley mouth?? Yes, that's my favorite of all, so cute right? The "saddist" within me pinch the eyes and the mouth to eat first before munching up the rest of the heart.. Hahaha!

Woppes! Zillions of sorry for the lousy pictures.. Hehe.. I baked these at night, and it was close to 2am by the time I'm done, so I'm really tired by then.. hee

I adapted the recipe from Aunty Yochana.

80g cream cheese

  3. Add in plain flour, cornflour and baking powder. Mix till a soft pliable dough is formed.
  4. Take some dough and mix in colouring of your choice (and emulco if using).
  5. Chill both dough for 30mins to harden them alittle.
  6. Roll out the uncoloured dough on floured surface and cut into shape of your choice.
  7. Roll out the coloured dough and make into shape of your choice and add onto the plain cookie dough (as a design). May use some egg whites to stick the details on.
