This recipe, as the majority on this site, is simple. The minimum of time spent and the maximum of pleasure to derive from :). Seizing the moment and interesting idea I decided to engage my children in cooking – got wants and needs met, so to say. I eventually recall my childhood when we (I and my sisters) used to help my mom in cooking – it was some bakery, dumplings or pot stickers in most cases.
I and my kids had a lot of fun while preparing these cookies. I prepared the dough in advance and when the right time came and everyone was ready we started cutting them off with colorful cutters.
We killed two birds with one stone. My children were engaged, they were interested, and development of a number of practical skills was an additional benefit for them. But I, as a mom was the person who felt the educational moment first-hand. This exercise trains such important skills for a mom as patience and tolerance towards mistakes of others )))). Cooking in line with gathering dough from the floor and taking photos is a hard nut to crack. Here come the recipe and photos of the cookies preparation process.
150 g butter
200 g cottage cheese
250 g flour
100 g sugar
Grate butter, add cheese, sugar and mix thoroughly. Then add flour and quickly knead dough.
Wrap the dough into polyethylene or food wrap and take it into the fridge for at least 2 hours. If you want you can make dough in the evening and bake cookies in the morning.
Roll out the dough 3 mm thick and cut the cookies with cute cookies cutters. If it sticks a little then spread some flour on the surface.
Put the cookies onto a baking sheet on the baking paper. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Timind depends on the cookies size. They should be baked in a hot oven at 392°F (200°C).
You are welcome to use the recipe and engage you young assistants in such an interesting job :).
