So basically, at this time of year I like to have some baking done. And this is my basic low sugar cookie dough. The one that will get you through the season. The one that will make people go “you shouldn’t have” and you’ll be giggling internally knowing how little effort they took. There are four flavour ideas for adding into the cookies here and I’m sure you’ll find one you love!
This cookie mixture makes a good 60 cookies or so, depending on how much stuff you put in them! Even with nothing in them they are pretty yummy and there is no rolling, cutting or anything tricky involved. When I say they are low sugar, the sugar in these isn’t low for a recipe- but it is when split over 60 cookies! Just use your judgement about whether your kids can eat them or not, or how many. They are a treat.
We love them, there wasn’t a flavour Miss 7 didn’t like, and I’m pretty much the same. Master 5 on the other hand only liked one flavour…choc chip! So basically I divide the dough into four portions and add my extras. If you want to do them all choc chip, then just add 4 times the choc chips I have in the recipe below.
What were my other flavours? Snickerdoodle- because everyone loves cinnamon cookies, right? Peanut butter (I used crunchy), cranberry and finally the beloved choc chip. Which do you think your kids will love?
These kind of have a shortbread texture and are super easy to store, either in an airtight container on the bench…or…in the freezer for when people drop by! They only take a matter of minutes to defrost at room temperature. Keep some hidden away for whenever the snack attack happens.
Can’t get enough of my yummy cookie recipes? I prepared more of these in my blog post. Check these recipes below:
