Cookie Clay Dough
Serving Size: About 40 small cookies
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Recipe from Crystal at Everyday Food Storage
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup butter (1 cube)
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg (can use powdered eggs)
2 cup whole wheat flour
2 T dry egg powder (do not add water at this time) or 1 extra large egg
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Cream together first 5 ingredients with a mixer. In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients. Slowly add to the creamy mixture until it reaches the consistency of Play-Doh.
Give the Cookie Clay Dough to your kids and let them make shapes, letters, etc. out of it. They can use it like they would use regular Play-Doh. Once they are finished, put all of the shapes on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
I am the chorister for the children in my church. They did a huge program during our meeting today, so I made these cookies as a treat to reward them. One of the kids asked me what was in them so I gave the list of ingredients and was proud to include “fresh ground whole wheat from my food storage”. Well the kid pulled a nasty face and said “Are you trying to POISON us or something?”. I got all sad thinking that the kids would reject them. I didn’t teach music today so I just left the cookies for them to have during their lesson. After church I had at least 5 children come up and try to convince me to give them one of the leftover cookies, 3 kids thanked me for making such good cookies, and one little girl drew a picture of me celebrating with her after our program (with cookies!). I guess they were a hit. Another food storage recipe success!
