Butterfly Roll-Up Cookies


Making the same recipe of cookies, again and again, gets really boring at some point. Why not try something different for a change, while still keeping the traditional line of cookie making? The following tutorial will learn you how to make some tasty DIY butterfly roll-up cookies. You will need:

• powdered sugar, 1 cup;
• baking powder, 1 teaspoon;
• margarine, 3/4 of a cup;
• flour, 2 cups;
• corn starch, 1 cup;
• vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon;
• cocoa, 1 1/2 tablespoons;
• 1 egg;

As said before, the recipe is based on a traditional and simple cake but with a creative twist. First, stir in all, but the cocoa, in a bowl in order to prepare the dough, while the oven is preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. When the ingredients are combined in a nice mixture separate into two balls of equal size. Take the cocoa and add it in one of the balls. Put the pair of dough wrapped in some plastic for about 30 minutes in the fridge.

Remove from cooling and spread the balls into rectangles, with the cocoa layer underneath the simple one. Slice in half with a knife and roll up each of them. Press them next to each other in order to look something like a fat or bloated butterfly. Take the knife again and cut into pieces. Take each slice and press a bit together with your fingers. It should look like a proper butterfly now. Place onto a tray and bake for some minutes. Yummy and creative!

    “Place onto a tray and bake for some minutes.”
    How long is “SOME” minutes? As good as this recipe sounds the baking time is not very helpful.

      I can usually tell when cookies, cakes, pizza, etc. are done by the smell. You can train yourself to recognize the right time by making note of how your kitchen smells right about the time when the timer goes off. Unless I’m distracted, I seldom miss taking anything I’m baking out of the oven when it smells done.

        It’s awesome that you can do this, but for the rest of us, can you give and estimate of how many minutes they should take?
