You guys all loved my cookies I made for Dottie’s 1st Birthday!
So many of you saying I should make them professionally etc.
I’m flattered, but honestly they are SO easy to make!
I make mine in the Thermomix but I have made them other times before I had it.
I’ve also used a couple different recipes just off google, but the last few batches I’ve made have been from this recipe-
200g Sugar (caster or white)
300g Plain Flour
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
Pinch of salt
Vanilla Essence (about a dash, or add a bit more if you like-I also do)
Cream Butter & Sugar Together
(If using Thermomix 20 seconds Speed 4)
Add rest of ingredients and combined
(Thermomix 10 seconds Speed 6, scrape down sides and mix again 10 seconds, Speed 6)
Kneed together to make a dough
(Thermomix on Dough/Wheat setting for 20 seconds-it will resemble bread crumbs but once poured out onto surface can be kneaded together by hand)
Knead, then roll into a ball, cover in cling wrap and put in the fridge for a MINIMUM of 1 hour.
Once dough has hardened from fridge, roll out onto a floured surface and start cutting your cookies! I do find it can be a bit crumbly, but the more you work with it the more it starts to stick back together.
I usually cook mine for 5-8 minutes at 180 degrees.
It will all depend on how thick/thin you make yours, and also what shape of cookie cutter you use.
Keep a close eye on them though, it doesn’t take much for them to overcook. They will still be soft and look under cooked, but once cooled down they will harden.
This recipe should make anywhere from 15-20 cookies-depending on how big and also how thick you make them.
Now, the icing is the easiest part of all!
I use the 1kg Queens Ready To Roll from Woolworths for $8!
Literally just roll it out and cut it with your cookie cutter, then stamp it!
I use a little bit of icing mixture (icing sugar and water) to help it stick onto the cookie, but otherwise that is it!
I have bought my various cookie stamps and cutters online. Ebay and Etsy mainly.
If you do try this recipe, please share with me how they have gone!
Thanks for reading
