    Beautiful. Made these with my 4 y old son. We added cocoa powder and white chocolate stars to make double choc chip. We don't have a cutter so instead we broke the dough into pieces, rolled it into balls then flattened them with our hands. I've added a pic of the finished 'cookies' - 24 Mar 2013

    Altered ingredient amounts. I felt the need to add 1 oz of butter extra to get the dough to form well enough to roll out then chilled it in the fridge for 10 mins before rolling out. - 08 May 2010
