If there’s one thing we love as a family it’s baking – and we always bake once a week. Usually though the children ask to bake something seasonal or current – something to prepare us for the autumn, summer puddings, festive delights or something that coincides with their school learning, a TV show or movie. Well, it just so happens that today Smallfoot has been released at cinemas across the country.

Celebrating the Launch of Small Foot with a Yeti Cookies Recipe

So last week LP, Little Man and I made some yeti cookies to celebrate the launch and thought we’d share them with you in case you want to make your very own cookies at home. They’re simple to make, taste great and are perfect for the whole family to enjoy.

Here’s our Yeti Cookies Recipe:

Ingredients (Makes approx 14 cookies)

For the biscuits

  • 150g butter
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 350g plain flour
  • a pinch of salt

For the decoration

  • food colouring – blue and black
  • 150g icing sugar
  • edible eyes

Recipe

  • Beat the icing sugar and butter together until fluffy and then add the egg yolk
  • Sift in the flour and salt and knead to form a dough
  • Chill in the fridge for 20 minutes
  • Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5
  • Roll out the dough to about 6mm thick and cut out rounds with a cookie cutter

  • Place on a baking sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes until they start to brown around the edges

  • Leave to cool completely – preferably overnight

  • Make the icing by mixing the icing sugar with about 15ml water – add water a tiny bit at a time until you get a good consistency that will coat the back of a spoon
  • Seperate the icing into three and colour two lots blue and black
  • Start decorating the cookies with the blue first – drawing on horns and the outline of the yeti mouths
  • Add black to the inside of the yeti mouths, drawing teeth shapes

  • Fill in the teeth with white and then draw an ‘furry’ outline around the cookies in white before filling the rest in with white

  • Before the icing sets, stick eyes on to finish the cookies off.

LP and Little Man loved helping to bake the cookies – although the icing was mostly my handiwork! Dave said they reminded him of bakery biscuits from his childhood and the children really enjoyed them to – so we’ll definitely be making them again.

Warner Bros’ Smallfoot is out now. An animated adventure for the whole family with original music and an all-star cast – Channing Tatum, James Corden, Danny DeVito and more – Smallfoot, turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human.
