Christmas Cookies

And it’s Christmas again, this time is always busy and fun at the same time. A lot of events, getting together with family, friends and of course baking and cooking.

I made these cookies for an event that I was cooking and decorating for. Winter wonderland! Sprinkled with powdered sugar they just fit the theme perfectly. Warning they are addictive!Enjoy

 

Ingredients

(Makes about 70 cookies)

180 g  soft butter

100 g powdered sugar

1 pinch of salt

3 egg yolks

330 g flour

1  tsp baking powder

 

  • Put the soft butter, powdered sugar and pinch of salt in a bowl and blend it with a mixer  until it becomes creamy.
  • Add the egg yolks.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder into the batter and blend it again until it forms a dough. Roll the dough into a log approximately 6cm in diameter,  wrap it with plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator for approx. 30 min.
  • Set oven to 175ºC (350º F). Take the dough out of the refrigerator, cut off a 6cm piece and place the rest back in the fridge. Roll out the small piece of dough on a flour covered slab until it is 3 – 4mm thick. Cut the cookies out to desired shapes, place them on a parchment paper covered baking sheet and bake them for 7-9 min or just until the edges turn brown. Take them out of the oven and place them on a cooling rack. Repeat this step until all the remaining dough is used.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • These cookies can be stored in a box for up to a few weeks.

 

Enjoy
