Preschool Treats

Muddy Hand Cookies Posted by Hello

Today was Quinn's treat day at preschool. He loves it when it is his turn to bring the snack. The theme for the week is number 5 so I made hand cookies. I found a recipe for Muddy Hand Cookies at I happened to already have a cookie cutter in the shape of a hand so these were very easy to make. The cookies had a nice rich chocolate flavor and taste good even without icing.

2/3 Cup butter
1 Cup granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/2 Cups flour
1/2 Cup unsweetend cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla extract together. Add eggs and mix well. Add dry ingredients, blending thoroughtly. Chill dough until firm. (I rolled the dough between layers of parchment and then chilled it to speed up the process)

Roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick. Lay your hand on the dough and cut around it to make your handprint. ( I used a hand-shaped cookie cutter) Bake on an ungreased sheet at 350 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes.
