Christmas Cookies Recipe of 01-12-2010 [Updated on 24-10-2017]
As I told you, this is the week of cookies, and today December 1st there is no better recipe to publish than Christmas cookies! Lately, cookies have become my greatest passion in the kitchen and last weekend in the midst of Christmas, I started preparing these cute colorful Christmas cookies. I armed myself with my Christmas molds, with the help of my husband and with taaaaaanta patience and this was the nice result that I brought to my in-laws' house where we brushed 2 whole trays of cookies. In short, to get into the Christmas spirit, these cheerful and colorful cookies seem perfect to me.
How to make Christmas cookies
Work the butter together with the sugar and the egg.
Then add the flour, vanilla and baking powder and mix everything quickly with your fingertips.Form the dough into a ball and let it rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
Take the dough and spread it on a floured surface with a thickness of about 3 mm and with the cookie cutters
Arrange the biscuits on a greased baking sheet.
Bake the cookies at 180 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Now prepare the icing by dissolving the icing sugar with 2 tablespoons of water.
Divide the icing into various bowls where you will then add the food coloring.
Mix until you get a glaze with a bright and homogeneous color and prepare the sugared almonds with which you will have to decorate the cookies
Brush the freshly baked biscuits with the icing and garnish them immediately with the sugared almonds as the icing tends to harden quickly.
Transfer the Christmas cookies to a serving dish and serve
Christmas cookies can also be used to decorate the Christmas tree! Remember, once you have cut out the desired shape, to make a hole in the dough. After decorating the cookies, once they are dry, pass a colored ribbon through the hole and hang the cookies on your Christmas tree.
