Coconut sugar cookies

My first attempt at actually including my almost two year old in the baking process was making these sugar cookies. Somehow, we didn’t make too much of a mess, the cookies turned out great, and she learned a new word : cook.

The recipe I loosely followed is based on a healthy sugar cookies recipe found here, but I tweaked the ingredients:

    Sift together

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
    Beat

  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
    Add to sugar/ butter and beat

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut
    Combine wet and dry, form into two balls and chill for at least an hour.
    Roll out dough, cut into shapes.
    Bake in 180 C oven for ~10 min.
