Furthermore, I doubt that I will actually eat any of my cookies. Not because I don't like them; I do, very much indeed. But LittleGrouch helped prepare them and he is under the impression that they are all his. He insisted that HubbyGrouch eat one but so far, HubbyGrouch managed to postpone it (he is not one for cookies). Maybe I can pinch one while LittleGrouch is at preschool.
Ingredients (for 15 3D cookies):
400 g all-purpose flour
150 g confectioner's sugar
2 tbsp rum (optional)
200 g unsalted butter
2 dashes salt
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Combine all ingredients until you obtain a smooth dough. Cover with plastic wrap an chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 390F. Line 2-3 baking sheets with parchment paper. Working in badges, on a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to a thickness of 4-5 millimeters. Dip cookie cutters in flour, then cut out cookies and place on baking sheets. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on cookie racks. When the cookies have cooled down, assemble them, using a little (chocolate flavored) icing to "glue" the legs to the bodies. Decorate cookies to your liking.
