#7 – Recipe Christmas Cookies

Christmas Time is Baking Time

Ingredients

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

Preparation:

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.
