  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 200 grams butter
  • 2 eggs


  • Preheat your oven to 360ºF or 180ºC.
  • Mix all of your ingredients in 1 bowl. I don’t have a Stand Mixer, so I use a hand-held mixer. Later, I mix it with my bare hands
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it’s 1/4 to 1/2 inches thick.
  • Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter.
    This is the time to go crazy with your kids. Let them chose any cookie cutter they want or let them be creative and create their own shape.
  • Place your cookies on a pan, and lightly dust some sugar on top or sprinkles in any colour.
  • Bake for around 10-12 mins. Those cookies bake very quickly.

Enjoy with milk and store some before it's gone.
