Stayed inside and made COOKIES, yummmmmm!

Today we are stuck inside but there is a good side to this; we are making COOKIES!!!! Mommy says they are good with cheese but I'm lactose intolerant, sigh. I would like to share this recipe with you so you can make your own.

                               PRINCESS ZELDA'S FAVORITE COOKIES (makes 5 dozen)

2C    Flour
1/2C Cornmeal
1/4C Sunflower seeds
1/4C Flax
1/2C Oatmeal (this is cooked leftovers and you can use mashed potatoes or any mashed cooked veg)
2tsp  Baking powder
3T    Dehydrated chicken soup (the yellow stuff from the bulk food store)
1/4C Olive oil
2       Eggs (an extra one for an egg wash if you like real brown shiny cookies)
1/2C Water (or enough to make dough hold together without being sticky)

All the wet stuff gets dumped into the dry stuff and mixed up, then kneaded 3 min. If you can use a machine, then GO FOR IT!  Then form into 4 balls (yay balls) and drop onto floured board and roll out flat and about 1/8" thick. Now it's time to cut into shapes. Place cookies onto cookie sheet, place in preheated 350* oven for 15 minutes or a little more until slightly browned and when cool eat them up!!! If you can stop yourself from eating them all up they will keep for about 2 weeks.


To make them shiny brush raw egg over raw cookies then bake.
For Peanut Butter Flavored exchange 1/4 C peanut butter for the oil.
Or if you prefer Cheese Flavored (if you aren't lactose intolerant) add 1/4 C favourite cheese to mix.

Mommy takes the dough left over from cutting out my cookies and rerolls it real thin, cuts it in squares, bakes them up and calls them "soda crackers" and really likes them, too!
