Ap-peel-ing Cookies

Time:15 min Difficulty:Easy  

Do you like apples? Cookies? How about both? We’ve got cookies that you’ll apple-solutely love.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup of butter
    Tip: You can use apple sauce instead of butter for extra fluffy cookies
  • An adult to help with baking
  • Green food colouring (or matcha powder as a natural alternative)
  • Red food colouring (or hibiscus powder as a natural alternative)
  • Chocolate chips

Here’s how you make it:

Step 1: Add all your dry ingredients in a big bowl and add the eggs and butter. Mix until you form a dough.

Step 2: Divide your cookie dough into three bowls. Add your green food colouring to one bowl, and red colouring to another. Leave your third bowl as is.

Chill the dough in the fridge for about 10-15 mins.

Step 3: With the help of an adult, preheat the oven to 350°F.

Spoon some red dough out, and use your fingers to spread it and form a small well in the middle. Add a small spoonful of the regular coloured dough into the well and adjust your red dough around it. Using the green dough, form two small leaf shapes. Repeat for each cookie slice. Once done, add two chocolate chips in the center of each of your slices.

Step 4: Put the cookies in the oven and bake for 10-13 minutes, depending on your oven and the size of your cookies. You’ll know they’re ready when the edges of your cookies are browned.

Let them cool, then share your cookies with your family and friends! Bon appétit!
