Cookies

Christmas time is nearing! Time to get 'em christmas cookies in the making. Super simple and lovely simple gifts to make! Also fun for the kids too :). Here's a simple batter recipe that one can make abundantly and you can freeze it for almost a month too!



And if you want them to 'melt' into your mouth, substitue the granulated sugar for icing sugar ;)

Makes 36 x 10cm cookies

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup (225g) butter , softened 
  • 1 ½ cup (300g) caster sugar / granulated sugar (or 1 cup icing sugar)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 ½ cups (460g) plain flour 
Method:
  1. Mix the butter and sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon, then add the egg yolk and vanilla and briefly beat to combine. Mix at high speed.
  2. Sift over the flour and stir until the mixture is well combined - you might need to get your hands in at the end to give everything a really good mix and press the dough together. Start off at low speed. Be careful not to over mix as the dough will harden.
  3. Place dough into an air tight gladwrap and place it in the refrigerator for an hour.
  4. Sprinkle some flour on a piece of parchment paper and place the dough on top.
  5. Sprinkle flour over a rolling pin (or use a wine bottle) before rolling the dough. If it gets soft, place it in the fridge once more.
  6. Thickness should be ¼ inches.
  7. Place it in a fridge for an hour once more before cutting them up.
  8. Bake in an oven for 12-15 mins at 180 deg C.
This is the season to be jolllyyyyyy...
