Schools have resumed, and my yummy homemade cookies is ready for the kids.

This recipe was made for the kids as a take-to-school snack, I made chin-chin and other snacks and decided to add cookies to have varieties.

My cookies was super yummy! Like I will always say, try it out, you will love it!

The preparation is quick and easy. With the combination of the ingredient in the right proportion, you have your yum yum cookies.

This recipe also save you lots of money, for those of you that enjoy or often get  cookies for your kids, you will understand better what am trying to communicate.

Cookies is a sweet treat loved by many including children. It’s similar to shortbread biscuit and prepared in different shapes and sizes, can be found in supermarkets and other departmental stores.

It can also be enjoyed alongside with tea, chilled drink  and the likes.

    Thanks for the recipe, pls I want to know if I will add the egg to the margarine and sugar mix before incorporating the flour. Then also, is there no need of baking powder? Also do you need to put the dough to rest on refrigerator or at room temperature. Thanks ma
