- Mixing Bowl
- Large Wooden Spoon
- Measuring Cups
- Rolling Pin
- Baking Paper
- Baking Tray
- Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutter
- 3 cups of plain flour
- 1 cup of butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 tablespoon of milk
- dash of vanilla essence
Start by mixing together the butter and sugar, if you have an electric whisk or mixer you can use that. Mix together to create a creamy mixture similar to when you make a Victoria sponge recipe.
Beat the egg into the mixture along with the milk and vanilla essence, the mixture will then become loose and runny.
Add the flour 1 cup at a time to make sure the bowl doesn’t get too full and to stop lumps forming. Sieve the flour into the bowl to create a fine powder to ensure no lumps occur. Slowly mix in the flour, each time this will get harder as the mixture will slowly change to a dough.
If you feel the mixture is still too soft add more flour. Once the mixture is sticky and doughy move from using a utensil to your hands. Rub on flour to help keep the mixture from sticking.
Place in the sprinkles and food colouring if using and mix. Pull together the dough and knead together.
Cover an even flat surface with flour and put the dough on the surface. Rub flour onto your rolling pin to stop the dough from sticking. Roll out the dough to roughly 1.5 cm thick, you can make them thicker if you like. Remember not to make them too thin as they will just be too tough to eat and hard.
Cut out with your cookie cutter and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until slightly golden on top. Leave to cool before eating. Decorate with icing if you like.
