My son is definitely a real fan of it. He loves not only to eat these cookies, however, always is a number one in the kitchen, when it come to decorating them. Thus, they are perfect for those who loves to experiment with the topping.

Step 9. Put anything you want on the top of the cookies. We have made a kids’ version with sprinkles (push them to the dough, so it holds better) and one a little bit heather version with oats and dried fruits. You can also add any ingredients you want into a dough (rosins, chocolate chips etc.) and stir until combined.
