Dotty Cookies 001

These cookies are so easy using simple ingredients and only taking about 15 minutes to mix. They’ll be a huge hit with the kids and are perfect in lunchboxes for a morning tea treat or great as an after school snack with a lovely glass of icy cold milk! These cookies are also great to serve at a child’s birthday party because they are so cute and bright! I love this recipe because it stretches a long way, making approximately 30 – 32 cookies. Enjoy!

Dotty Cookies …
Serves: 30 – 32
Ingredients …
  • 100g butter, melted and cooled
  • ½ cup castor sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 ½ cups self-raising flour
  • Freckles or Smarties for decoration
Method …
  1. Preheat oven to 160C (fan-forced) and line 3 large biscuit trays with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar, vanilla essence and egg. Add the self-raising flour and mix well until all ingredients are combined.
  3. Refrigerate cookie dough for 15 – 30 minutes or until firm.
  4. Remove cookie dough from fridge and roll 2 teaspoons of mixture into balls. Place on prepared trays, leaving 2 – 3 cm between each cooking to allow for spreading. Using the palm of your hand, flatten each ball of dough slightly and decorate the tops with either Freckles or Smarties.
  5. Bake for approximately 12 minutes or until the cookies are lightly golden. Remove trays from oven and allow to stand for 5 minutes before transferring cookies to a wire rack to cool.
  6. These cookies will store in an air-tight container for approximately 1 week (if they last that long).
