This is a fun recipe which you could do with other members in your family like younger siblings and have a great time doing. Along with making domino shapes you could also cookie cutters to make snowmen and other figures. I hope you enjoy this recipe and like always, have fun!
Step 1: Making the Batter
Mix together with a wooden spoon, or your hands:
- 1 cup butter (if salted don't add the pinch of salt)
- 3/4 cup confectioners or powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- and a dash of salt (if butter is not salted)
all sifted together into the mix
Step 2: Letting the Batter Sit
After making the batter, divide the batter into two bowls, and cover with a wet towel or saran wrap, so the batter doesn't dry out. The batter shouldn't be much drier than when you first put it in the fridge.
Step 3: Making the Shapes and Cooking
First, set the oven to 375 F/ 190 C
Now you can make the domino shapes. An easy way to do this is to use a square cookie cutter, and then cut that in half, for the small rectangles. For the small indent in the middle, very lightly use a knife to make a very thin cut in the middle of the rectangles.
Now, but the cookies in the oven for 10 minutes, let cool, and enjoy!
