Great Companion....Butter / Choc Cookies

What's the meaning of today's title???...Well, its really great and fun!! That was the most FUN baking and deco section i ever had..hee hee! Okay, okay.....let me tell you ...;)
My daughter wanted to join me whenever i was baking or cooking most of the time. So i promised her that we'll bake some cookies and decorate it. She has been looking forward to her very 1st baking class...haha! Then we've made it today!

Never thought of it was such a fun baking with her. She can handle the tools carefully and properly. And i was so surprised that she had such a patient spending the whole 3 hours in the kitchen with me! Guess we cannot under estimate those kids nowadays..;p
Here are those cookies she decorated.....really great!!

I'ver prepared the dough for her this morning....chilled then let her cut with her favourite cutter. Yeap...she used all her cutter from her play-doh..haha! The ingredients for the cookies?....okay here is it.....
Ingredients (Butter sugar cookies)
230g All purpose flour
1/8tsp Salt
1/2tsp Baking powder
113g Unsalted butter
120g Caster sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp Vanilla essence
* sugar already been reduced
~ Mix together flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
~ In an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 3-4 mins)
~Add in egg and vanilla, beat until combined.
~ Add in flour mixture, and beat until become a smooth dough.
~ Divide the dough into 2 portions, wrap with a plastic wrap. Refrigerate for about 1 hour or until fir enough to roll.
~ Preheat oven to 180'C. Remove 1 half of the chilled dough, placed on a lightly flour dust surface and roll out the dough (1cm thickness)
~ Lightly flour the cookies cutter and cut into desire shapes.
~ Placed the cookies on the tray (lined with parchment paper) and chilled for another 10-15 mins.
(this is to prevent the cookies from spreading and losing their shapes while baking)
~ Then bake cookies for 10 mins (depending on the size) or until they turn brown around the edges.
~ Remove from the oven and let cool on baking tray for a few minutes before transfering to a wire rack to cool completely.
(cool completely before frosting or deco)

65g Unsweetened cocoa powder
4g Baking powder
