Sugar cookie flower cereal
Updated: Mar 8, 2022
Hello Spring! 🌸🌼🌷
Today I want to share some sweet treats that I made last year and are just perfect for springtime: Sugar cookie flower cereal 💁♀️
Tiny and colourful sugar cookies (I adapted this recipe from Nigella) that are perfect to be enjoyed the cereal way: soaked in a bowl of milk! 🥛
I had so much fun baking these ones and they were super delicious.
You can check out how I made them in the section below this picture!
87g soft butter
100g super-fine sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract*
200g all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a bowl cream butter and sugar together with an electric mixer (or in the stand mixer).
Then beat in the egg and the vanilla extract. Keep working until creamy.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
Add dry ingredients to your creamed ingredients, a little at a time, until it is well incorporated and you can roll your dough into a ball.
Divide the dough into 6 balls of the same weight (mine around 70g each).
Pour a few drops of food colouring on each one of them and knead to get an evenly coloured dough.
Then wrap them in plastic wrap, and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Once chilled, roll out on wax paper, using flour where necessary so it doesn’t stick to your rolling pin, or the counter.
Cut out the dough into small flowers and make a whole with a tiny rounded cutter or a wooden spoon. Then fill the whole with another coloured flower discard. Get creative and make all the colour combination that you can think of!
Then transfers them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Bake for about 8 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.
Let them cool on the baking sheet.
Place the flower cereal in a bowl and add cold milk.
You can use vanillina (powdered vanilla) if you cannot find any vanilla extract.
If the dough starts to soften put it back in the fridge and chill for a few minutes; then it will be easier to work with.
You can freeze the dough for a month or so.
I used this dough to make Sugar cookie LEGO cereal.
If you make it let me know! :)
