First time testing out the squeeze cookies. They were a bit softer than I anticipated, I think it’s due to over beating (as I always over beat, ergh) Luckily the recipe was for a small family batch, so I can give it another go shortly.
This is what it looked like after baking. it just flattened out, and the shape didn’t hold. Despite the cookies not holding shape, it still tasted pretty good and crispy. I really need to stop sampling these though, it’s no good for my waist line.

I got these new cookie cutters, and couldn’t wait to try them out, so I broke out the remaining chocolate dough and tested it out. The dog bone shaped cookie cutter does not cut as well…i might have to use a knife to clean up the edges a bit more. The rest worked great, and I still have to get used to using the alphabets, but i love the new cookie cutter.
Looking forward to making more cookies with them!!

Nothing I love more than spontaneous friend gatherings. Yesterday, Lynn msgged me early afternoon seeing what I was doing, I said prob making cookies, then I asked if she wanted to come over. With nothing else planned for the day, Lynn, Cris & Wei-Chih came over to my house.
Agreeing on making chocolate cookies, we set to work. Everyone had a different idea of what type of cookie they wanted, we settled on cashew/banana flavor & og chocolate. So we made a double batch.
Lynn wanted to help out in mixing so I gave the reign to her, letting her mix the butter, mixing the flour & etc… letting everyone that wanted to help help out, half the fun is in the actual doing after all.
After all the mixing was done, I split the batch into two and added banana & cashew into one mix, and putting the other half in the fridge for later.
We might have had added one too many banana, so the cookie dough ended up being really moist, in that i was unable to form the mixture into a ball form, I just free formed it in scoop form.
The other half, we played with the cookie cutter…everyone had a good time using the cutters to make shapes that they wanted.
While waiting for the cookies to bake, we played some Wii fitness.
What a fun relaxing sunday with friends.
