Are you ready, parents? 1, 2, 3, allons-y! Starting Saturday, June 13, 2015 through Saturday, June 20, 2015, Disney XD will be airing Doctor Who episodes featuring the beloved Tenth Doctor, David Tennant.
This means a whole new generation of Whovians will have the opportunity to immerse themselves into the world of Gallifrey and beyond. The show will be airing in mini-marathon chunks of episodes, perfect for binge watching and dreaming of time travel. Settle in for the ride with your littlest companion and made these adorable (not-at-all frightening) Doctor Who Weeping Angel Cookies. Don’t blink!
Doctor Who Weeping Angel Cookies
-3 cups all-purpose flour
-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-pinch of salt
-1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
-1 cup sugar
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-Super Black food gel dye
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar until combined. Add the egg and vanilla.
Slowly add in the flour mixture until the dough is crumbly. Then add just 1 – 2 drops of Super Black food gel dye. By adding this after the dough is almost done you will get a grayed marble effect.
Beat the mixture together a bit more, just until the dough comes together and looks almost like Bleu Cheese. Don’t mix too far, you will be rolling this out later which will mix it even more. You don’t want all gray dough.
Separate the dough into two and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill in the fridge.
When you are ready to make cookies preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prep cookie sheets with silpats or parchment.
Roll out the dough to 3/8″ thick. You want to make it thick enough to get all of the impressions to show through.
Also, this particular cutter needs a little help, so dip it in flour before you press it into the dough. It will keep it from sticking.
Move the cookies to the prepped cookie sheets and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
