Saint Nicholas came to visit and he brought a big bag full of cookies for you!
Spiced Sugar Cookies
I really love those cookies because they are made with 3D cookies stamps to wish you a merry Christmas! And the shop where I got them from (Personello) produces the stamps according to your wishes so you can get pretty much every design you can imagine – unfortunately they only ship across Europe.
Sugar Cookies with Christmas Spice
makes about 50
- 100g powdered sugar
- 250g flour
- 125g butter
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon of vanillasugar & cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspsoon of ground ginger & all spice
Mix & sift powderded sugar and flour. Add all the other ingredients and knead until the dough is smooth. Refrigerate:
– for 2 hours when you want to use cookie stamps (the colder the easier)
– for 1 hour when you’re going to use regular cookie cutters
Preheat oven to 350°C.
Roll out the dough on a well floured surface & use the cookie stamp or cutter to make the cookies. Put them on a baking tray lined with baking paper & bake for 10 minutes. Let cool completely.
I used icing, chocolate, cocoa powder, edible metallic powder & sprinkles for decoration – but these are just some ideas and you can get totally creative!
I hope you have a great St. Nicolas Day & HAPPY BAKING!
