Christmas cookies (recipe 1)

12:14 pm Cookie

This is the easiest Christmas cookies recipe I’ve ever seen. It has just few ingredients and they all are always on hand. The main thing is to buy backing cups to get cookies star- or fir tree-shaped.

4 ½ ounces sugar
8 ounces butter
¾ pond flour
pinch of salt

For decoration:
2 ounces icing sugar
sugared cherries

1. Stir butter and sugar in a large bowl. Add salt and flour, make dough.
2. Place dough on the table, sprinkled with flour. Knead dough for some minutes, then make a ball and put it into the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
3. Roll out dough 5 mm thick and cut out Christmas figures, for example angels, bells and stars. Put them on a greased backing sheet.
4. Heat oven to 180 C (350 F) and put Christmas cookies inside. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Then turn the heat off but don’t take cookie out – allow it bake for 10 minutes more. After that take figures and place them on a rack to finish cooling.
5. Combine icing sugar with a little water to get a thick paste and trim cookie using pastry bag. You can also use sugared fruits and nuts.
6. Keep cookie in a box or tie up a ribbon to them and hang on Christmas tree.
