Yesterday the boys and I enjoyed a spot of baking (my idea) and toilet training (Joshua's). The first one went very well; that's all I'll say on that subject.
These cookies are really good and so easy to make, they're my new favourite basic bikkie. I found the recipe in an advertising feature in an old Donna Hay mag:
Brown Sugar Cookies
Process 125g chopped cold butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 1/2 cups plain flour in a food processor until it looks like dry breadcrumbs. Add one egg and process until mixture just comes together. Turn onto lightly floured surface and knead gently. Wrap and refrigerate for 1/2 hour, roll out to 3mm thick and cut shapes. Decorate if you wish (I used Smarties). Bake at 180C for 8-10 mins or until golden. Makes approx 40.
