#7 – Recipe Christmas Cookies

Christmas Time is Baking Time


250 g Soft butter

250 g Sugar

500 g Flour (#405)

2 Eggs

½ Sachet of backing powder

Chocolate coating

Powdered sugar

Lemon juice

Sugar sprinkles and chopped nuts for decoration

Cookie cutter forms


Mix the butter, sugar and eggs. Mix the flour and the backing powder and gradually stir with the butter, sugar and eggs. Put the dough aside and let it rest a couple of hours if possible. This is not necessary, though.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface, cut out the cookies and place them on a baking tray, with baking paper. Bake at about 200 ° for 5 - 8 minutes until the edges are slightly brown. The cookies are still a bit soft, but when cooling down they will become hard.

Stir the lemon juice and powdered sugar until you get a thick sugar icing. Decorate the cookies by attaching sugar sprinkles, chopped nuts or melted chocolate coating.
