I promised to post my favorite cookie recipe – here it is. The advantage of this recipe is that it does not contain eggs so the kids can even eat the dough while preparing the cookies. The cookies are very easy to make and is a big success for a birthday party activity with few children.

Galletas con forma de nube con la dirección de mi blog con gotitas de agua de smarties.

Cloud-shaped cookies with the address of my blog and blue M&Ms or Smarties as raindrops.

Ingredients for the dough:

250 g of wheat flour (I usually use the semi-wholemeal one)

2 tablespoons of icing sugar

1 sachet of vanilla sugar

1 pinch of salt

150 g softened organic butter

50 g of sour cream ( 20 or 24 % fat )

Ingredients to decorate cookies:

M&Ms (Smarties), nuts, sugar pearls, etc. . and an egg yolk

You also need a knife, cookie stamps and cookie cutters.

Stir all ingredients together and put the dough in plastic foil. Let it cool for at least one hour in the fridge.

Heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough 0.5 cm (0.2 inch) thick. Cut out shapes with a knife or cookie cutters – your fantasy has no limits.

Beat the egg yolk with a tablespoon of water and apply a thin layer with a brush on the cut cookies. You can glue sugar pearls, nuts or M&Ms in the cookies. Decorate as you and your kids like.

I have small letter stamps you combine to words to decorate cookies and it occurred to me that is a very cute idea as snack for a Baby Shower Party. You can cut shapes like the cloud you see in the picture (it still shows the old address of the blog, because I did already some time ago), crowns, raindrops, stars, dresses, shirts etc. . with a knife or just buy a suitable cookie cutters (you can find shapes like pacifiers, strollers, bottles etc.). You can stamp the cookies with baby’s name or just stamp baby, if you do not want to reveal the name.

Bake 13 min in preheated oven and your precious cookies are ready.
