It the season for cookies! A great way to entertain Geeklings when it's too cold or rainy to play outside. The dough is like clay you can eat, and the cookies are nice too! ;-)
Geeks wouldn't be geeks without Geeky cookies cutters. I found a bunch of them on the website Wish. Especially Marvel is well represented.. I bought several versions, the more traditional cookies cutters, but also some silicone molds. The good thing about the last category is that you can use them for all kinds of things, cookies, chocolate, icecubes, and even soap.
After the first batch I noticed that the cookie recipe is very important when you make detailed cookies like these. Otherwise the dough will flow out too much and ruin the design. So: use the best basic recipe!
I use the recipe from this website: 150 grams white caster sugar (basterdsuiker), 50 grams vanilla sugar, 200 grams butter, 1 egg, and 400 grams of flour. It is the flour that keeps the cookies 'in shape'. Also, keep the dough in the fridge for at least an hour!
See the results above: which cookies do you prefer? I like the regulars best, for a normal cookie recipe. The silicone mold is quite deep, so the cookies get rather thick. You can make them thinner, but it's a hassle, especially for Geeklings.
