It's time for another Lets Cook! Today we're making Rilakkuma cookies that are super low calorie (it works out about 15 calories a cookie!)
You will need for 26 cookies:
- 100g Self raising flour + 3TBSP for rolling out
- 26g Weight Watchers Dairy Spread
- 1 TBSP Stevia (possibly more if you like very sweet cookies)
- 1 TSP Vanilla Extract (Or any flavouring you'd like)
- 1 TBSP Water (to bind)
- 1 Cal cooking spray
- Rolling Pin
- Cookie cutters
- Baking Tray
- Pallet Knife (Optional)
Pre-heat your oven to 180c (I have a fan over so you may need to counter for this. Give your baking sheet a good spray over the 1 cal spray to ensure that the cookies won't stick to it! Measure out your flour into a bowl
Add in the Stevia and stir to mix in
Add in the Dairy spread
rub between your thumbs and fingers until it lumps together - If you have a pastry mixer (It looks like a half horse shoe, with a handle and several slatted blades, you can use this to save your fingers getting messy!)
Gradually add in some of the water and mix - you need enough to to cause the dough to stick together but not be super sticky
Dust your rolling board/counter top as well as your hands with some of the flour left over
Roll out your dough until its about 3mm thick and cut out your shapes
Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool - Store these in an airtight container else you may find they go rather soggy!
And there you have it! Tasty cookies for not many calories - I may try making these again with cinnamon or nutmeg instead!
I hope you enjoy these!
Ta-ta for now!
