OK, so this weekend I didn't get to bake anything big because I was working, but it just doesn't feel right to see the kitchen being so quiet and the oven being unheated....hahaha, I know I sounded crazy, but that's just me :p I just have to bake something today because if not, I won't be in peace the whole day. The other day, I bought a set of 'Animal Cookie cutters' and they are just so cute........heh, now I have an excuse to bake.......LOL, and Angelica totally demanded that I do too, because she saw those lovely cutters and just couldn't wait to eat a cookie made out of it ^_^
I picked a very simple cookie recipe from one of the my newly invested cookbook, hehe – "50 All Time Favourite Bakes by Seashore Publishing (M) S/B" at a very special promo price of RM9.90 at Popular Bookstore (usual price RM21.90) and it's called the "Animal Cookies'. The cookies turned out really cute with the 'animal prints' on it, and it sure makes the kids 'ooh-ing' and 'wah-ing' all the way when it came out of the oven.......LOL
And this is the recipe, it's very simple and it can be prepared and done within less than 40 minutes. get your kids to involve and have fun ..........as usual, Happy Cookies Baking from me to you ^-^
