Total Time 30 minutes


  • 2 egg yolks about 40g, room temp
  • 20 g oil
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • 40 g icing sugar
  • 120 g cake or plain flour


  • Place egg yolks into a medium mixing bowl. Add in oil and vanilla extract. Whisk well.
  • Add in icing sugar and salt. Whisk well.
  • Sift in cake or plain flour in 2 batches. Mix in a cutting motion using spatula. 
  • You will see cookie dough crumbles. Using your hands, press together the crumbles and mold into a dough. If dough is too dry to mold into 1 dough, sprinkle in a little milk, by 1/4 tsp at a time.
  • You can then roll out the dough in between baking paper t0 0.4-0.5cm thickness, or keep in fridge for later, or freeze it.
  • Preheat oven to 160C. After cutting out the dough in shapes, place onto lined baking tray. Bake for about 13-16 mins, depending on dough size.
  • Once baked, cool completely on wire rack before storing in airtight container.


If you do not want your child to take too much sugar, you can reduce sugar to about 30g-35g. If you do not have cake flour, you can definitely use plain flour, the texture of the cookie won't be as fine, however, would be still quite yummy!
