Recipe for this powder cookies for kids:


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk powder (I used Nido)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • For decorating: I used chocolate chips, cocoa powder, and white chocolate


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, milk powder, baking powder, and salt.

In a separate large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until well combined.

At this point, you can separate the dough into two.
