Cooking with Kids: Alphabet Cookies

Kids love to help in the kitchen, love letters, and love cookies. This is a rainy day activity that combines all three!


You can use them to work on letter identification or for older kids, making a special message for someone in the family whose perhaps having a birthday. It’s a cinch to make and the result is not only educational but delicious.

To make the cookies simply combine a standard sugar cookie dough with 2 egg yolks and ¼ cup of flour. Let your child roll it out into a nice rectangular type shape.

Using a pizza cutter, slice the dough into thin strips

Let your child roll out thin logs and help them make shapes to write their name or maybe a message for someone in their family’s birthday.

Place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Make small indentations where pieces of letters meet to lay them nicely together.

Bake at 180ºC for about 20-25 minutes

Let cool completely on a rack and either enjoy plain or ice with a basic icing.
