So, during half term I decided to get up and bake! I didn’t want it to be a massive deal and an over – complicated recipe, and, luckily, I found a frozen Olaf cookie kit in my cupboard…
So, I thought why the hell not? I opened the packaging to find a cookie cutter, a mix of cookie ingredients, the icing sugar and the decorations needed for his features.
Firstly, I mixed the cookie mixture ingredients with 1 teaspoon of butter (yeah, I thought it was a weird way of measuring butter too – maybe because it’s easier for kids?). However, this wasn’t as simple as it could have been as it became more like a crumble, so I added a few splashes of water and we were back on track!
I then floured my work surface and rolled the mixture out, using a rolling pin until it was even and roughly the same size across.
Then I used the Olaf cookie. Utter to cut out 6, very neat, little cookies – this was actually quite tricky as his head kept falling off! Lol! I then put them into the oven for 10 minutes until they were golden and crisp!
Once I had taken them out, I left them to cool (perfect time to clean away) before mixing the icing sugar with 2 teaspoons of water. I spread the icing sugar into te top and added the decorations accordingly. And ta-da!!
I did enjoy and it was a fun way to waste an hour ( I also love baking ), but the recipe wasn’t very accurate and I had to change it quite a lot as I went along. I can’t really complain as it was only a couple of pounds from ASDA, but, yeah, not the most accurate…
I also cooked us dinner – just call me Nigella! So stay tuned for that recipe soon!
Peace and love,
