Christmas Cookies

I've wanted to make Christmas Cookies for years, and today I finally got around to it!

Packaged in cellophane and ribbon, these festive cookies make a great gift! 

The cookies take about half an hour from scratch to baked and about ten minutes of decorating. This Christmas Eve it was time well spent! I used a wine glass and a Santa cookie cutter I received last Christmas, plus some royal icing, chocolate chips and leftover Snowman decorations.

There's not much more I can say about these, except I'm sure Santa will love them!

You will need:
1 cup Butter (softened)
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
2tbsp Light Brown Sugar
2 cups Cream Flour
  1. Line two baking trays and preheat oven to 175 degrees Celcius.
  2. Mix all ingredients until sand-like in consistency.
  3. Keep beating until they form a dough (if you're not getting the desired result, add an egg to the mix!)
  4. Roll out on a floured worktop to 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Cut out desired shapes.
  6. Bake for 12-15mins, until slightly darker than raw colour.
  7. Allow to cool on baking tray.
  8. Once cooled, decorate using royal icing and any available extras.
  9. Enjoy!

Stay sweet and Happy Christmas! x
