Cookie Monster Cookies!

The recipe is slightly adapted from one on the back of the Stork packet. Easy, tasty and quick.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time14 mins
Servings: 14 cookies
Course: Dessert

Ingredients

  • 300 grams gluten free plain flour
  • 120 grams Stork – comes in block - wrapped in paper. This is dairy free.
  • 90 grams caster sugar
  • 110 grams light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg

Construction

  • 150 grams icing sugar
  • 150 grams dairy-free spread e.g. Flora dairy free
  • 14 sets of eyes! - See note above

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a pan, on a very very low heat!
  • Pour the butter into a mixing bowl with caster & light brown sugar and mix with a wooden spoon/spatula until fully combined. Should take about a minute.
  • Crack the egg into the same bowl. Mix together until just combined. Set aside.
  • Put the flour, salt and baking powder into another bowl. Stir with a spoon so that its all evenly mixed together.
  • Add the flour to butter/sugar mixture & stir until fully combined. Note – It will look like a lot of flour! Keep stirring and it’ll all come together. Promise!
  • Cover with cling film and place into the fridge for at least an hour.
  • Remove from the fridge and divide into 14 balls – about golf ball sized.
    >The mixture should not be too sticky at this stage. If it is, place it back in the fridge to firm up.
  • Place onto baking parchment on a baking tray, leaving lots of room around them. Put into the oven for 12-15mins at 175oC until the edges are browning but the middles are still gooey.
  • Remove from the oven and carefully cut them down the middle - just off centre like my picture. Leave to cool on the baking tray for at least 10-15mins before attempting to move them – they are VERY fragile when warm but they harden up once they start to cool.

Construction

  • Once completely cool, whisk the butter and icing together until pale and smooth. Takes approx 3-4mins.
  • Place the icing into a bag & pipe like my picture on the larger half of the cookie.
  • Sandwich the other half on top, at a slight angle so it looks like a mouth!
  • Stick on some eyes with a tiny bit of butter icing - I think they look better if they're close together, like the Cookie Monster!
  • Eat!!!!
