Fräulein Zebra Xmas

Another day, another cookie recipe – today I’m showing you more of a classic one:

 

Sour Cream Cookies

 

I know, I know.. it doesn’t sound like much but they definitely taste great! PLUS: They are easy to make with only a handful of ingredients!

Sour Cream Cookies

makes  about 60 cookies

  • 500g flour
  • 300g sour cream
  • 300g cold butter, cut in little cubes
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 200g coarse sugar

Put flour in a bowl and make a well. Add sour cream and butter and knead until you have a smooth ball of dough. Wrap with foil and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Prepare serveral baking trays with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350°F.

Sprinkle your counter top with a little flour, then roll out the dough. Use a big round cookie (~ 6 cm) cutter to make circles and a smaller cookie cutter ( ~ 2 cm) to cut out little holes in the middle so you end up with rings. Mix the egg yolks with 2 tbsp of water. Brush the top of the cookies with the egg mix, dip them in the coarse sugar and put them on the baking tray. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Let cool completely.

PS: I wasn’t a mistake that there’s no sugar in the dough itself. All the sweetness comes from the coarse sugar on top and that is enough.

 

 

Feel hugged & HAPPY BAKING!
