In for a treat ? I have a Christmas cookies recipe for you !
You will need:
– 140g of sugar
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– 1 egg people
– 250g butter
– 375g of flour
Tip the sugar, vanilla extract, egg yolk and butter into a mixing bowl, then stir together with a wooden spoon. Add the flour and mix to a firm dough. Shape the dough into two flat discs and wrap them. Chill for 20-30 mins. Heat oven to 190C and line two baking sheets.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about the 5-6 mm thickness. Cut out Christmassy shapes (use a cutter if you like) and place on the baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 mins until lightly golden.
Decorate to your liking (see icing instructions ). You can even hang them on the Christmas tree!
