Cook: Mini Milk Cookies- Great as Snack For Kiddos

Mini Milk Cookies
Second attempt: Yummy three flavours mini milk cookies
Made some little cookies for the kiddos to munch today. These cookies are more of the crunchy type (not melt in the mouth type) so would be more suitable for kids 1 year old and above or at least those with teeth already, good for them to learn munching :)

It is nice to roll them into little ball shape, but after a while i get kinda frustrated cause the dough kinda dry up very quickly so it is hard to form the round little shape plus my 20 months boy keep messing around. Even my 3 years old who was helping me roll starts to get tired, so we decided to just cut them into small pieces without rolling. IT WORKS as well, although not as pretty.. well, depends how patient you are.. haha! 

For the icing sugar, you can omit if you want to, but i didn't cause it is minimal amount compare to the potato starch and i didn't want the cookies to taste too bland. I ate quite a few pieces of the biscuit myself and it is not sweet with the addition of the 30g sugar, you can reduce or omit as required.

My kiddos love them and keep requesting for more... yum! Great as snack for them to munch away....

UPDATED: We finish them in 5 days so definitely good for at least 5 days, may be able to last longer but we wouldn't know cause it is all in our stomach already :p

Second attempt: Made a three flavour second batch of the cookies by adding matcha powder and cocoa powder into the dough....

INGREDIENTS:
(Made about 120 mini biscuits, fits into one medium sized tupperware)

1. 200g of potato starch
2. 55g of milk powder ( I use the kiddo's formula milk powder)
3. 30g of icing sugar (can omit if doesn't want your kids to take any sugar)
4. 1 medium sized egg (at room temperature)
5. 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder

METHODS:
1. In a clean mixing bowl, beat the egg and the icing sugar until well combine using a mixer, it takes about 1-2 minutes.
2. Then add the milk powder and baking powder into the mixture. Combine with a spatula.
3. Slowly sieve in the potato starch into the mixture and combine using a spatula until it forms a workable dough. (Dont take the potato starch out from its packaging ahead of time cause it tends to stick to form a lump the longer it stays outside)

Second attempt: Three flavours: Original, Green Tea and Chocolate
4. On a clean surface, take some dough and roll them into a cylinder shape, and cut into small pieces using a plastic knife (as shown).

5. At this point, either roll them into mini ball or just place the little pieces onto a baking sheet. 
6. After a while, the dough will starts to get a little dry, making it hard to roll. Add a bit of water to the dough and continue to work on them.

Ready to go into oven
