The kindy mum’s organised a play at a local park during the school holidays, and I wanted to bring something to share, that was quick and easy.  These bickies were demolished by the kids, and although I wouldn’t recommend them for every day – they were great for a treat.  You could easily add different toppings if you are a bit imaginative!  You need to refrigerate the cookie dough for about 30 minutes before cutting, so make sure you allow yourself enough time. Making biscuits in your thermomix is so quick, saves on mess and money, and your kids will think you’re the best!!
