i have so many dessert/snack recipes since that’s what clara is mostly focused on =) Here is another take on a cutout cookie using carbalose flour.
The icing i have used here is Dawn’s icing recipe. I just added coloring & flavor. I had to whip it quite a bit to get a good consistency to decorate the cookies, but it was worth it given how pretty they turned out and how Clara just loved it.
For the smily face cookie, i used Nevada Manna mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. Place them on the cookie before baking. Once the cookie cools completely, the chocolate will harden too.
