So I was thinking….I need to do something different. Something that will make my blog stand out from the rest. And although I haven’t achieved that yet, I think I am on to something. My niece and I have a little thing going between  us. Lily has a doll house and I have a small doll and we like to talk about small furniture and tiny books and all those things that go hand in hand with loving the concept of a world of small things. Her dollhouse is called Stokholm and it is amazing. I secretly want one too. Anyway what I decided to do was make some teeny edible cookies and cakes for her dollhouse family. It was SO much fun. I packaged them up and sent them to her on the other side of Australia.I had to be careful rolling out teeny cookies. I just used normal butter cookie dough. I used a metal lid from  a bottle for the cake tin. You have to keep an eye on the cookies and cake when they are baking as you don’t want to burn them.

Butter Cookies Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 160 degrees C. Roll the dough into tiny balls and find a small sugar decoration to put on top.
  3. Bake for 2 to 4 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly golden at the edges. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
