Enough said, back to baking now. I've got this cheese cookies since 2007 but always procrastinating and finally made it a few days ago.
I started off with my disney cutters but had a hard time removing the dough. After struggling with 3/4 portion of the dough, I got lazy and just rolled them into a big rectangle and cut them into sticks.
Here are the cookies using my disney cutters. The first time I used these, the ears of Mickey kept breaking and I've since stopped using this until I made my mooncakes but I restricted it to Chip and Dale as they were the easiest to unmould :P My earlier attempt of mooncakes didn't turn out too well too. Anyway, though I've successfully unmoulded the dough, this recipe is not suitable to use cute cutters as the cookies turned out "patchy". Oh well, my kids don't really mind the poker-dotted disney characters :P
