Most kids love cookies – my son included. But, he often gets a nose bleed if he eats them too often. For this reason, I seldom offer him cookies. Lately, a recipe with flower shaped cookies in a cookbook caught his attention. He was so amazed with its appealing appearance that he kept pestering me to bake some for him. Of course, I was quite reluctant initially but finally relented as the recipe sounded simple yet wholesome to me.
Although the recipe uses wholemeal flour, the cookies turns out surprisingly crisps and delicious!!! Every bite has a wonderful nutty and buttery taste! My son loved it so much that he kept coming back for more even before the cookies were completed cool down. Not only my son, both my husband and I also enjoyed them every much. I baked another batch and shared some with my son’s classmate as her birthday treat. Later, I was told by her mother that it was a hit among her two elder daughters. Both finished the entire batch without leaving any to share with her youngest daughter (who is the birthday girl). Although I felt sorry for the little girl, I was heartened by this resounding response.
This kid-friendly recipe is very easy to make and doesn’t require much effort at all. You can even ask your kids to join the fun of making them. If you choose to halve the amount of the recipe, you can use a hand whisk to beat the batter. But I won’t advise you to do so as the amount of cookies will definitely not be enough. You will end up craving for more, I assured you. Make plenty as your entire family, not just the tots, will fancy them too. If you do not have the flower cookie cutter, feel free to use any type of cookies cutters to cut out shapes.
These cookies are ideal as snack, and suitable for picnic and party too. They also make great gift for your friends and relatives during special occasions. Why not give your loved ones a surprise with these edible flowers?
