Christmas Cookie Recipe



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

Makes 12

Ingredients

375 g cake flour
pinch of salt
250 g butter (room temperature)
125 g castor sugar
1 egg
1 packet of Sparkles sweets

Method

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!

Then:

  • Put the cookies in ‘n pretty tin or glass jar, tie a festive ribbon around it and give it to someone special as a Christmas gift.
  • If you made a little hole in them before baking, string through some ribbon and hang them in your tree.
  • Stack them high on a pretty plate and serve with a lovely glass of our 2014 Culinaria Muscat de Frontignan!
