We’ve got a tasty tree-t for you!
Why not some pine tree cookies to spruce your snacks up?

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Green food colouring (or matcha powder as a natural alternative)
  • Rolling pin
  • An adult to help with baking

Here’s how you make it:

Step 1: Add all your dry ingredients in a big bowl and add the eggs, butter and your green food colouring (or matcha powder). Mix until you form a dough.

Step 2: Divide your dough into two pieces. Roll it out on a board with a rolling pin.

Step 3: Cut triangle shapes out of your dough. Out of those shapes, remove 4 tiny triangles on each side. Lay your tree cookie pieces on a tray.

Chill the tray in the fridge for about 15-20 mins.

Step 4: Ask an adult for help to preheat the oven to 350°F.

When they are ready, put the cookies in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes. You’ll know they’re ready when the edges of your cookies are browned.

You’ve got yourself a forest of cookies! Time to dig in!
