Mini Tips:

  • If you don't have a rolling pin and cookie cutter, use your hands to shape a tiny piece of dough, or use a knife to cut into different shapes.
  • If you think colouring the cookies is too trouble, try decorate the cookies with chocolate beans.
  • No electric egg whisk? No problem. I also used to whisk by hand, the result was no difference at all.
