“If I hear “I’m hungry” one more time, I’m going to check myself into a nearby hotel and switch off my mobile phone!”
That’s me telling my four year old, who tells me he’s hungry every 15 minutes and the minute I rustle up something, he conveniently forgets about his hunger and runs off to rebuild a Lego castle for the 500th time.
But yesterday, I went out for a beautiful wine evening at The Sheraton #socialhour- it’s when people at Sheraton Hotels around the world come together for a toast at the decided time. What’s more, the wine served at each hotel across the world is from the same winery, for that week.
After multiple cabernet sauvignons rieslings, a good night’s sleep at my cousin’s place breakfast with a wonderful friend at the legendary Veena Stores, I’d had enough of me time and couldn’t wait to get back home to my mischief monger boy.
So today, when he said “I want cookies, mummy” – my guilt pushed me faster than a runaway train to start the oven and then think of something to bake on the spur of the moment.
It started with creaming some butter sugar, added flour and one thing led to the other. I ended up with these oh-so-cute brown cream cookies. When I posted the pics on Twitter Saffrontrail FB page, I was goaded into doing this quick post on how I made them.
I’m sorry I’m unable to provide very exact measurements, I hope it’s very close to the quantities I’ve used. Anyway cookies aren’t as unforgiving as cakes, so they should turn out okay! They only take 20 minutes, and I promise it will make your child (or the inner child in you) smile 🙂
