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!
