Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone has had a festive season with friends and family. This last seasonal cookie recipe is a simple favorite I’ll be bringing to the in-laws today. It’s a simple sugar cookie recipe with simple icing, and it’s the kind of thing you can always modify according to your tastes. Here is what you’ll need:
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
First, cream the butter and sugar. Then add in the beaten egg and vanilla, mixing very well. Finally add in the dry ingredients bit by bit until a dough forms. It really is that easy! Put into the fridge for 3 hours, or until dough is chilled.
Now for the icing! It’s pretty simple, just a bit of milk and icing or powdered sugar. You can start by trying 2 tablespoons of milk and 1/4 cup of sugar. It will take a lot of sugar to get the right consistentcy. Keep stirring with a whisk adding the sugar bit by bit.
Sprinkle while the icing is wet and let dry completely, and there you have it! Festive Christmas cookies. There are so many ways you can decorate these, but I chose to go simple this year. I may try some piping next year, but we’ll see. Wherever you are, have a very Merry Christmas! Enjoy the food around you and hopefully I’ll have some ideas for leftovers soon! Thanks for reading and Happy Eating!
