(edible) play-doh cookies!



Play-Doh Cookies!

I made these for my church's bake sale, and people couldn't believe that they were edible. Yep, totally edible. They taste a bit like sugar cookies, but you can definitely taste the tang of the cream cheese.

 


 



I made these holiday-themed ones around Christmas.

 
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • assorted colors of food coloring
  1. In a bowl cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until smooth.
  2. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir till soft dough forms. Divide dough into fourths. Tint each with a different food color. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Working with half of each color, shape dough into 3/4 inch balls and for each cookie place 1 pink, 1 green, 1 blue and 1 orange ball together to make 1 large ball. Shape into a 12 inch long roll (like a snake), starting at one end, coil roll to make a 2 3/4 inch round cookie. Place cookies 3 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake cookies for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and store in an airtight container.
Modified recipe from allrecipes.com. I just left out the lollipop sticks. Makes about 20-24 cookies.

The other day I made red velvet cupcakes using gindaisy's recipe for cake and iwantfashion's recipe for frosting. They turned out great and were really delicious.
