Did you have a great Easter? We did, but as usual, it has meant that my kids have now got a CRAZY amount of chocolate to work their way though! I have devised a bit of a cheeky tactic to use some of it up FAST so it isn’t hanging around my kitchen for too long (otherwise I will eat it!).
If it involves too much whizzing and mixing they loose interest so I had the idea that maybe we could create some cookies by simply smushing the ingredients together in a zip loc bag….really hands on, super for the senses as it feels amazing AND you get great cookies at the end – perfect!
SO the Easter Smush Cookie was born and it makes the best chewy on the inside, crunchy on the outside type of cookie ever – yippee! Wanna have a go?
This is enough to make about 25 cookies!
I was cooking with my two girls cooking with me so divided each ingredient into two bags so they could make some cookies each.
3 Large zip loc/zip seal bags
8oz Softened butter or margarine
6oz Soft light brown Sugar
12oz Plain Flour
1teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda
Turn your oven to heat up at 190C / 375F
Next add the eggs, seal the bags back up and squeeze and squish some more! This gets the mix all runny and oozy and looks a bit curdled and yucky but don’t panic!
Mix the flour and the bicarbonate of soda together. Open up your bags and smell the yummy mixture even if it looks funny! Spoon in the flour – seal your bags once more and get ready for your final big squeeze. Make sure the flour gets really mixed into the oozy mixture – you will see it actually start to look like cookie dough!
