hand-formed cookie

hand-formed cookie [hand fawrmd koo k-ee] noun

Bakepedia Tips

No tools are needed, so even very young children can help make hand-formed cookies. Dough can become sticky when it warms up and since hands radiate heat, it is a good idea to chill dough before working with it and to rinse your hands (or the little ones’ hands) in cold water every so often.
