This recipe is lots of fun to make with kids - they love kneading all the ingredients together and getting their hands all mucky and gucky! The title comes from squishing and mashing the dough and using up all that childhood agression and energy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Knead all ingredients (the longer the better!).
  3. Form small balls and pat flattish, place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 11 minutes.

For the fun factor, this was really good. The kids enjoyed pounding and squishing it, though they did eventually decide that their hands were "too messy!" (They are 5 & almost 3.) This tastes like a shortbread cookie and does not hold together very well. You really have to smush them to get them to keep any shape and not crumble before they are on the cookie sheet. They also took quite a bit longer to cook then indicated. For the second half I added some chocolate chips (just what I had left over in a bag) and we enjoyed that addition. Thanks for fun family time! (And the dog sure enjoyed cleaning up the floor!)
