I did my little google search, and found this recipe. The best part, no high fructose corn syrup found in most sweet things nowadays!
So the question is... homemade or store bought, which is better?
- 16 Tbs. (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 Tbs. vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
Mix on medium speed until creamy.
Now, when they are done, you don't want to let them cool without loosening them up from the pan. Otherwise they will stick, and then crumble when you try to scrape them off. The trick I use is immediately after coming out of the oven, I use a spatula to carefully push the cookie. I don't try to get under it, but dislodge it from the cookie pan. Then I just leave them there to cool all the way.
So what did we think?
Definitely a hit!
Homemade wins! They came out almost like a shortbread cookie, and very good. A great mix in for ice cream or yogurt. Perfect size for little fingers and mouths, plus no worry about processed/unhealthy ingredients. It gives me peace of mind knowing exactly what is going into the belly of my little guy. And another item I don't have to buy. Just ingredients I already have in my pantry.
