Happy Face Cookies Recipe
The top middle cookie is a puppy dog that my youngest son made. Note that he has two different colored eyes.
The following recipe makes approx. 12-15 depending on the size of your cookies. And although a fairly simple recipe will make a delicious cookie when finished.
Happy Faces Cookie Recipe.
2 1/2 sticks of butter - softened
1 cup of sugar
3 cups of flour
2 tsp. vanilla
1.Cream together your butter and sugar then add the vanilla and flour.
Mix well until it forms a crumbly ball.
2.Next decide what colors you're going to use for the hair, eyes and mouth. I used yellow and red for the hair and green and blue for the eyes and more red for mouth and nose.
3. Divide the cookie dough into small portions for the features (nose, mouth eyes and hair)leaving the majority of the cook dough for the faces.Next add a few drops of food color to each of the small portions and mix well, for this I used a small fork.
4. Refrigerate the cookie dough for several hours or until firm, otherwise the dough may be to soft to work with.
5. Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
6. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for approx. 8-10 or until done.
