Red Nose Day–Cookies


To celebrate Red Nose Day, Sainsbury blogger network had this Red nose day cookie challenge which I took part in and the result is these cute looking cookie faces with different shapes and sized red noses. Hope you find them funny as well. This is the easiest and quickest cookies I have baked ever in my life. Every thing under 30 minutes. This recipe will make 20 medium sized cookies.



Butter 200gms

Flour 300gms

Sugar 100gms

Vanilla extract 2tsp

Hand full of candid orange peal (optional and can be replaced by chopped nuts)

For decoration:

Dark chocolate 50 gm

Red candy



Melt the butter in a sauce pan and add the sugar in to it. Stir and once combined add the vanilla extract first then the flour in to it and mix it very well. Now add the orange peal or if you want add chopped nuts but this is optional if you want to make just basic cookies. When the flour and the butter is mixed well just take a table spoonful of mix at a time and make small ball out of it. press it a little to give it a cookie shape. 


Pre heat the oven to 180 degree C and place the raw cookies on a baking tray wrapped in baking paper. Leave enough gap between the cookies as they will expand a bit as they cook. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or when the colour of the cookies are just changing. Let them cool in a wire rack out of the oven.


Now break the dark chocolate in to pieces and placed them in a bowl. Take a bigger bowl half filled with boiling hot water and place the chocolate bowl in it. Make sure no water gets in the chocolate.cover it for 10 minutes or so you will have lovely melted chocolate for decoration. Mean while the cookies are ready as well for decoration. Decorate them as you like. I simply dunk the cookies in the melted chocolate to make different hair styles and glued the red candy with the same melted chocolate to the cookies.
