I got back from holiday and it was raining and cold so I knew that it was imperative to make an army of ninja love warriors to add a burst of light to our days.
As soon as she opens her school lunch box boom boom peow the love ninjas will never let you down (same works with adults and a cup of tea)
To make your army you will need:
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 egg yolk
1t baking soda
1t vanilla extract
2 1/4 cup flour of choice
Melt butter, sugar and maple syrup over a low heat, mix in vanilla and egg yolk once off the heat. Gradually shift in dry ingredients until well mixed (I use my hands) then wrap and place in the freezer to chill for about 2 hours, this makes it much firmer and easier to work with. Use enough flour to stop it sticking and roll out into about 1/2cm thick. Cut with your cookie cutters (i picked my ninjas up in the UK)
Bake for 6-10 min on baking paper lined tray at about 200 degrees until nice and brown and yummy smelling. Allow to cool on tray for a bit if you like them crispy. Then cool completely on a wire rack.
When cool, decorate as you want, get creative, be wild!
