Try this very easy recipe for Christmas Cookies! Stacked in a glass jar, they make a lovely Christmas gift and if you remember to make holes before baking, they are delightful decorations for your tree!
Christmas Cookie Recipe
375 g cake flour
pinch of salt
250 g butter (room temperature)
125 g castor sugar
1 packet of Sparkles sweets
Pre-heat oven to 180 °C.
Sift together flour and salt.
Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and beat well.
Add flour to butter mixture and mix well until it comes together.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface, roll into a ball, cover with cling film and rest it for an hour in the refrigerator.
Take dough from refrigerator and roll out to 5 mm.
Use various cookie cutters to cut out Christmas shapes and place the cookies 2 cm apart on a buttered baking sheet. (We have a lovely selection of cookie cutters in our shop!)
Use a smaller cookie cutter to cut out a form in the middle of the existing cookie and place a Sparkles sweet in die space.
If you want to use them as Christmas tree decorations, remember to also make a small hole in the middle / top of the cookie.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown and until the Sparkles sweet has melted.
Allow time to cool down and enjoy!
