Playdough Cookies

Incredible, Edible and Delicious!
by Katy Stewart 

When I was a child, making these cookies with my mom was always looked forward to. It’s like playing with playdough, but instead of cleaning everything up and putting it away, the end result here is eating them! Who doesn’t love that?


  • 3 c flour
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • food coloring (and/or powdered drink packets or jello mix) 

For those with egg allergies or if you’re simply worried, try these simple substitutions!

  • 1/2 of a medium banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup of applesauce (or other pureed fruit)
